Diengiei Peak Overview

Ranked 60 of 43 sightseeing in Shillong
Diengiei Peak, situated on the western side of Shillong, is 6200 ft in altitude, just 200 ft shorter than the tallest peak in Shillong, Shillong Peak. Known for its panoramic views of Shillong, Diengiei Peak paints a perfect portrait. Being one of the highest peaks here, it is often surrounded with fog.
On top of the peak there is a huge hollow crevice shaped like a cup. Geologists believe that the hollow cup shape could be the remains of an inactivate volcano.
The best time to visit the Diengiei Peak is from November to June. Known for its beautiful surroundings, numerous photographers visit the peak. One can also get spectacular views of the Umiam Lake surrounded by the city of Shillong from the peak.
For a height of about 1000 ft, the gradient of this peak is very steep and precipitous which makes for excellent mountain climbing. Other adventurous sports like rock climbing and rapelling can be done here.
There are other tourist attractions like Dwarksuid, Kharsati Park, Thrills Fun Park, Mawthadraishan and Kharsati Park.
There is a motorable road to Diengiei Peak from Shillong. If you are an avid trekker, take the narrow path from Umiyangka village to the summit.

Panoramic view of the plains

The Diengiei Peak offers a panoramic view of the plains below. It is few hundred feet low in height compared to the Shillong peak but provides same excitement and beautiful view of the greenery all around.
