Shillong View Point, Shillong

3.8
One of the highest points in Meghalaya state at 1,965 m (6,446 ft) altitude, Shillong View Point offers sweeping 360-degree views of the capital city. Lush greenery and the serene environment make this spot popular with tourists. Use one of the telescopes on site to catch a spectacular view of the waterfalls gushing out of a mountain. You'll need permission from the Air Force Station to access the peak, which lies along an Indian Air Force road; this might take time, but free parking is available. Bring some snacks along.

  • One need to cross the Indian air force premises to reach the viewpoint, so kindly carry valid ID along with you. There are 2 small towers with huge telescope incorporated on each tower to have a great view of the city. Personally i feel the place is bit overrated, but if you are really tensed than this place can make you feel rejuvenated. Timing: 9 AM - 3.30 PM
  • Panoramic view of Shillong within the air force base on top of the hill. The views were uninterrupted and were quite terrific. There are telescopes on one of the viewing platforms in case you want a closer look at the city.
