Stroll through the pine-flanked country paths and stand on the edge of the grassy plateau and the mountains open up into a deep chasm. There are treks you can enjoy down to the valley settlements below or you can stay where you are and try to spot waterfalls and streams in the distance.
  • Best time to visit: November – March
  • How to reach: Laitlum is approximately 22km from Shillong, a cab can be taken from the centre of Shillong city.
