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.

  • Amazing place....Shillong View Point Laitkor Peak is situated at a height of approx. 6000 ft. from the plain land. It falls in the Indian Air Force area / compound. One can have the best scenic view and beauty of the city from this place. Clean and fresh environment.
  • The place is situated in Shillong about 6000 ft above the plain. The place is in the area of Indian Air Force. So they don't allow foreigners to enter the place. The entry fee is Rs.30/- for the Adults above 10 Yrs. Below 10 years is free. Binocular view and toilet are free of cost. The entire location is nice and beautiful and mostly clean. Complete Shillong view is possible from the top from here. The place is very cool and airy. Tourist can take photos with Meghalayan dress here by the cost of Rs.50/- only. The food stalls are there with the availability of snacks, cold Drinks, fruits, vegetables fries, boiled egg, gimlet, chow etc. with the double value of every think compare to the plain area shops. 1 minute binocular view is good. We went there with Meghalaya Tourism conducted bus tour. Every one should keep valid ID proof to enter there.
