A good view of Shillong is available from this view point. It is inside the Air Force base so the surroundings are very clean

Shillong view point comes under Indian Air Force area. You can see the whole Shillong from here. There is lots of tea/coffee shop. You have to pay entry fee along with parking fee.

The lead up to this view point was not all that good as the roads were broken in several patches. However, we were welcomed by the Air Force inside and parking was easy. The entire Shillong city can be seen from this view point, and...More

The place gives excellent view of the city from a vantage point. There is a telescope to have clear view of total city. The valleys are also beautiful. Airforce permission is required

Foreign nationals are not allowed inside. The place is probably the highest point of Shillong. It gives a good birds eye view of the beautiful city. It's located inside Air Force station and hence requires ID cards for everyone entering.

Hi, I have read through the various reviews of this attraction here and one reviewer mentions that the gates close at around 15:30 hrs for entry of visitors. Yet another person says that Shillong looks beautiful under lights from this view point (I guess this person meant evenings - late evenings) I would like to know as to when does the gate open for entry of tourists? And when does one need to vacate the place after entering before 15:30 hrs, as one mentions? And any entry fees? Has anyone visited this place early mornings? Like 6 am or 7 am? This will help me a ton in planning my itinerary. Many have mentioned about Maggi and other stuff available to eat. Any outlets that offer other than Maggi? Like Aloo Parathas, Poori Subji, Sandwiches, Eggs, Bread Butter etc? Thanks in advance to all.
