Posted @withregram • @bonvoyage_with_rutuja 📍Shillong is a small city and the best way to experience is on foot. Walking around the city, exploring its food and culture, talking to the locals could be life time memories for you. Few must visit places are at a distance and can be covered either by shared taxis or city bus. 🚎
At a distance of 13 km from Shillong Bus Stand, Shillong Peak is an enchanting vantage point located at Laitkor area of Shillong, Meghalaya. Situated in the outskirts of the Shillong, it is one of the popular viewpoints in Meghalaya and among the prominent places to experience Shillong Tourism.
The peak offers an enchanting 360 degree view of the entire Shillong city. At the peak there is a high tower with a telescope. An ideal retreat for visitors, the location also features a radar station of the Indian Air Force.
Due to security reasons at the air base, travellers need to show their original ID cards and surrender their cameras at the check post before entering into the viewpoint area. Foreigners are not allowed to enter this area as it is controlled by Indian Air Force.
As someone from a very (very) middle class background, “travelling” to just travel and see places was never something that featured for a very long time in my life, and I didn’t know how much I would love it. It’s been a very calculated thing always. This trip was one mind blowing calculation.
“ I'm turning tricks, I'm getting fixed
I'm back on Boogie Street
You lose your grip, and then you slip
Into the masterpiece
And maybe I had miles to drive
And promises to keep
You ditch it all to stay alive
A thousand kisses deep “ 🧡
