Sohpetbneng Peak Overview

Ranked 59 of 43 sightseeing in Shillong

Sohpetbneng Peak is an ideal site for solitude seekers that stands at an altitude of 1,343 metre from the sea level. The location provides a mesmerising bird’s eye view of the dense forest and the city of Shillong.

The peak is associated with mythological tales and is revered by the Hynniewtrep community. It is believed that Hynniewtrep tribe of Meghalaya grew a tree at the peak,  which acted as a ladder between them and God. In course of time, the Hynniewtrep tribe comprising Khasi, Jaintia, Bhoi and War tribes migrated from the highlands. Due to this, the religious significance of the site faded over the years.

Sohpetbneng, meaning the 'navel of heaven', is known for divine essence and is transformed to tourist's site. Tourists can reach the heavenly peak point which is 20 km from Shillong.
