A trip to Shillong’s abandoned natural scenery could be as easy as stepping off a bus.
The park, which sits in a picturesque location on the edge of the city, is home to the world’s only mangrove forest.
Shillongs Mangroves is one of Australia’s largest mangroves.
It’s home to up to 100,000 species of mangrooves.
But you may not realise you’re in one until you see it.
“It’s just beautiful,” said Dr Richard Heffernan, from the Australian Museum.
“You don’t realise what you’ve got until you get out and walk around and see it.”
The mangroved forest is home, for instance, to a huge variety of rare trees.
“They have an extraordinary range of colour and it’s quite a unique forest,” he said.
“And it’s very rich in wildlife.”
There’s something for everyone The natural landscape is a beautiful place to explore, particularly if you want to see what’s around the next bend.
But the area isn’t the only thing you’ll find.
There are many places in the park to walk and explore.
Some of the mangrovels are open to the public, and you can even see some wildlife.
It would be a shame to miss out on this natural wonder, however, as it’s so spectacularly unique.
