Breathtaking view from end to end where ever you look. The ride is very long but worth it . The canyons last until the eye can see , we went on a sunny day so got a good view .

Beautiful view... breathtaking gorges... steep winding stairs going down to lush green valley... although the road from Shillong to this place was very bad and bumpy.. it took 2 hours to reach there but it was worth going..

It was a simply breathtaking view. The canyon was clearly visible and it was the first time we experienced something like this. Would definitely recommend visiting this place, situated outskirts of Shillong.
