Day Trip to Shillong with Indian Lunch

Shillong is the capital and hill station of Meghalaya, also known as "The Abode of Clouds", one of the smallest states in India. It is the headquarters of the East Khasi Hills district and is situated at an average altitude of 4,908 feet (1,496 m) above sea level. There are a lot of quiet places to visit in Shillong. The destination is one of the quaintest places in India and many tourist places in Shillong remain all time favourites among travelers. The attractions here are more on the natural side. Some of the places that you just cannot miss are Elephant Falls, Ward's Lake, Shillong Peak, Umiam Lake, and Elephant Falls. Other than these, there is the Don Bosco Museum too. Shopping paradise is Police Bazar.

Half an hour drive from the city of Shillong, Laitlum Canyons is a priceless gems bestowed in this region by nature. Laitlum literally means ‘The End of Hills’ and the scenic beauty you enjoy here justify the name given to it. One of the less popular tourist places in Shillong, Laitlum Canyons is a perfect getaway spot if you are looking for cool & solace place away from glittering & crowded town. Perched atop serene hills of East Khasi, making this place quite popular among photographers and trekkers. We were so absorbed with beauty of this place that …….some of us didn’t want to leave.

The Laitlum grand canyon is a visual treat, one can see various shades of green for miles around, standing at the edge of the canyon. Spend a few hours sitting there, enjoying the wind and the solitude. One can also pack some food (and maybe some wine), bring along a mat, and enjoy a picnic watching the kids play in the meadows while one relaxes... Absolute bliss!! The road journey is tough, narrow broken dusty roads, but its well worth it. They are building some fences for safety of the tourists, but jn my view that is spoiling the view. Try the stairs which go downhill, with viewing platforms which allow one to soak in the beauty of this place. The food options available are pretty basic, though

On a trip to Meghalaya keep laitlum canyons on must visit list. Enchanting views and enthralling beauty you can watch the canyons for hours and run over meadows. Also if you have stamina take a trek down.

The site, about an hour and half's drive from Shillong, has the potential for exploration for hours at end. However, we were halted after venturing for just a hundred meters or so by gesticulating locals with whom language barrier did not permit us to communicate. We could merely see the expanse from a view point which left us wondering if the long drive was worth it!
