The very first place I saw was the whole Shillong in one frame from the gorgeous Shilong view point. It was like a painter’s canvas, who has filled the painting with all the colours he had. The floating clouds, bright blue sky and the mountains—my eyes were pleased like never before. And I agreed with the line that “Shillong is the Scotland of the East,” even though I haven’t visited Scotland, I can guarantee it’s true. I spent almost an hour there but then the crowed started coming and I moved on to my next destination.
Shillong Viewpoint: 10 kms away from Shillong lies the highest point in the state of Meghalaya, which offers stunning panoramic views of the city, on one side, and lush greenery and cascading waterfalls, on the other. So if you're here for a day with no clouds playing their spoil sport, take a taxi straight to the Shillong viewpoint and enjoy the majestic Himalayan peaks, and the glimpses of Bangladesh plains and the city of Shillong.
Shillong view point, located on the outskirts of the Meghalaya's capital city, is a spot under the control of Indian Airforce, and is well known for a panoramic bird's eye view of Shillong city..
This is not a tourist place but I had to mention this because of its beautiful landscape. We had visited one of our relatives and witnessed its beauty.
