Sitting 1,966 m (6,450 ft) above sea level and frequently clad in heavy mist, Shillong Peak is a popular picnic spot offering panoramic views of the countryside, the Himalayas, and the eponymous city. You will have to leave your camera at the gates for security reasons, since this territory belongs to an Indian air force base. Observe locals in their everyday routines through the small telescope installed at the top. If you need to refresh, check out the snack stalls selling corn and tea.
