One of the most amazing and picturesque tourist destinations, perched atop the East Khasi Hills of Shillong is The Laitlum Canyons, which in literal sense means “The End of Hills” or “The End of The World”. Nestled in the embrace of majestic hills and valleys, The Laitlum Canyons in one such spot from where the vast, verdant and fascinating panorama of Meghalaya could be viewed and admired.
Located at just 45 min drive from the center of Meghalaya’s capital Shillong, this exotic site is relatively less crowded and less commercial, thus offering a serene, secluded spot for some quiet, peaceful moments. The ascent to the spot is a long, rocky, though verdure trail, which attracts trekkers, adventurers and nature lovers alike. The enveloping fog, the freshness of the mist, the calm and reticent surrounding along with a vibrant spectrum of hues that makes themselves conspicuous during sunrise and sunset, makes the place breathtakingly surreal.
