Shillong View Point, Shillong

(3.8/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This was another average outing since the place needs to be kept clean. The food stalls here are overpriced but the location does make one hungry. Having a pair of binoculars might be helpful.

  • Breathtaking and a spectacular view of the Shillong City.. Inside Air force station. Well maintained and under strict security. Entry through the main air force gate is preferred. Must visit spot in Shillong.
  • Shillong continues to be the cultural and educational hotspot of the north-east, and is also quite popular among researchers. With what can be called as raw life pulsating through Meghalaya’s capital, Shillong is the best place to visit in March in India, when the clear blue skies form the perfect backdrop ofthe Khasi Hills that flank the city on its east. Be it shopping on the Bara Bazar and the Police Bazar, or long walks among the pine trees and waterfalls, or an enriching visit to the Don Bosco Museum, a vacation in Shillong in itself is a very complete experience.
  • Shillong capital of Meghalaya; The city is above 5000 feet above sea level and Shillong view point is around 6500 feet above sea level and the view is wonderful experience everyone should have to feel..... TOP of the world. "Shillong is well connected with other northeastern States of India by National Highways and is selected to be developed as SMART CITY by Govt. of INDIA. What does it mean lot of e-Governance and Citizen's participation, Water , Waste and Energy management.... lot we can expect in the years to come....
