I have visited Shillong peak two to three times. This is around 10 km from main town and at the highest point of shillong . Roads are very smooth but roundish to go upto the peak point. So sometimes vomitting filling or vomit may occer as the other hilly way. Peak is very nice and cold . From peak you can find how nice of the city. you can observe full shillong city from here. The peak is not so spacies but bounderies made by railing. So can spend sometime to enjoy this peak.

Very Nice place for city view, The Shillong peak stands at a whopping 2000mtr above sea level. The peak dedicated to the city is also the highest point in the state. An ideal picnic spot, the Shillong Peak offer breathtaking bird's eye view of the city and the scattered villages around the Peak. A sanctum offering curtsy U Shulong is located at the peak's summit. The spiritual pastor of Mylliem State offers prayers at the sanctum during springtime. If the view of the human abode below is breathtaking during daytime, then the view at nighttime in absolutely awe inspiring. The city and other dwelling lights provide the ground below an aura of the night sky.

This is just a view point popularly known as "Shillong Peak". One of the highest peaks in Shillong. You can see the whole town from there. Vehicles can be parked right near to the view point. Need to have a good zoom camera to take good snaps. The place will be usually crowded with tourists. Few shops are there selling local articrafts and other things. Bargain for the best price if you are planning to buy anything. There is a watch tower for the best view, another one under construction.

Shillong Peak is located around 10 km from the Shillong city at an altitude of 1965 m above sea level is the highest peak there. One can get a panoramic scenic view of the city from the peak. This point is included in the sightseeing of the Shillong city. The road to the point is very smooth and you need to cross the Air Force Museum at Upper Shillong to reach there. There are vendors selling snacks and beverages, you can have some and leave for your next destination.

No hill station is complete without its own view point and Shillong is no different. The only thing different is that you drive through a air force base to reach here. Try and make it around noon when visibility could be clear. Also, try the pineapples sold here!
