We visited this place on March 2017 - a chilled and rainy morning. The ambience was awesome. Enjoyed the chilling wind a lot. To me, it is the best part of City Tour. The local shops also have some wonderful items if you are shopaholic!

YOU go through a military base hiding all your camera equipment, but when you reach there, the view is pretty bismal. even on a clear day the view is not that enjoyable. most of the days are cloudy, so youre pretty much unlucky.

If luck permits without any fog then spent some good time from the tower. The top most point of Shillong giving a magnificent view of the city.

I have been to this point numerous times. Just go there for some quiet time or a walk may be. Good place to chill for a short time with street snacks available in plenty to kill time.

Questions & Answers
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.
