“This place is your typical view point which gives a panoramic view of Shillong town on a clear day. This place is designed for tourist crowd so do not expect much peace and quiet. Interestingly , the actual Shillong peak is a short hike near the view point which most tourists miss because they are always on vehicles which fly past the peak. The actual Shillong peak is a sacred place for the Khasis and often the clods descend upon the stone monoliths at the peak.”

“There are shops where you can buy some attractive pieces of khasi people. You can also rent khasi dress for taking photos. Views are panoramic. You can get some tea and snacks here. Drive carefully if you are driving on your own. ”

“From here, one can see the concrete jungle of Shillong. The best time is at night as one can see the city lights of Shillong shimmering. But entry here at night it’s doubtful as the place is closely guarded by the Military. But if you’re lucky enough to get there at night, you’ll be treated to a wonderful sight ahead. Plus lots of local shops for tourist to buy local made products.”

“Preferable to visit without too many luggages as you may have to undergo a search by the army people for security reasons and this may delay your journey. ”
