Sightseeing at Shillong cannot be complete until you spare time to visit the Shillong peak. If you want a panoramic view of the beauty of Shillong, just take the trekking trail to Shillong Peak and you will get to witness a spectacular sight, unique and exquisitely charming. Experience a completely different high here! Approximately 1966 m above sea level, this peak enjoys the tag of being the highest point in the state of Meghalaya. Make sure you pack some snacks before you head for this peak.
Once you reach here, you can feast your eyes on the hills that dot the city and the pretty houses clustered together in groups. At the peak, you will also find a sacred spot dedicated to the U Shulong and at this particular spot, every spring, a ritual is held, in honor of U Shulong. A paradise for avid photographers, the view is clear and amazing during the day, and at night, you can stare up the sky and soak in the aura of the enchanting starlit sky.
