Better views in Cherrapunji. Carry your photo ID to gain access to the view point. Small shops on the way to the viewpoint offer fresh fruits and veggies from local farms.

The wait before the Air Force Station gate is rather lengthy but once inside, the view from the peak is enchanting. One gets a panoramic view of the entire city.

A visit to Shillong Will be incomplete without a trip to Shillong Peak view point. On a clear day THE view is magnificent & all prominent places can be viewed. People with traditional dress are waiting to be photographed with you.

Must visit to enjoy telescopic view of the beautiful Shillong city. Since it's a peak, the weather and cool breeze will add to the charm.

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.
