Beautiful place, although the entry was thru' the Air force station, Shillong. While you get a wonderful look of the valley from the peak, and there's a good shopping area, tourists should be more careful in maintaining cleanliness ( wrappers and water bottles thrown in...More

This is not very far from busy Shillong. Slightly uphill and the entry is controlled by the IAF staff. You could encounter delays in the entry on a busy day since there are security checks there. But the view of the city on an afternoon...More

If u are at Shillong u can take a drive around the golf course Shillong, make a visit at Don Bosco Museum Mawlai, come back to police bazar for midday meal and enjoy the evening at nearby Wards lake.
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.
