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.

Where to stay in Shillong

Shillong's accommodations cater to a range of tastes and budgets, meeting the needs of budget-conscious backpackers and middle-class Indian families wishing to get away from the heat at lower altitudes. The Police Bazar district has most of the lodgings of interest to those seeking the simplicity of a guesthouse or the value of a hostel. Staying in this lively commercial area puts you right in the thick of things. To the south, you'll find some pristine resort hotels set in privileged spots with vistas, pools, and fine-dining restaurants.
