“You can see the whole town from here”

The view point is located within an airbase. There are 2 watchtowers and a few shops. You can see the whole town from the watchtowers. There is also a telescope available.

“Decent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Shillong peak is the highest point in Meghalaya, overlooking Shillong City. The place has couple of telescopes for viewing over distance. Few nice tea shops sell eatables, snacks, fruits, etc.. It is obviously useful to go to this place only when the sky is clear and you get a great view of the city.
