The Lailtum Grand Canyons is a visual treat .The word ‘Lailtum’ literally means ‘The end of the world’ and the scenic beauty of the place justifies the name. It is a perfect getaway from the fever and fret of the world but it is one of the less popular tourist spots in Shillong. This cool and peaceful place is situated atop green serene hills of East Khasi. This spot is popular among photographers and trekkers. Though the journey is cumbersome, the enthralling beauty of the place is worth the trouble. The air is crisp and the view unlimited. It is a good picnic spot and there are steps down the deep canyon slope with intermittent platforms. One can breathe the clean air, soak in the sunshine and absorb the silence and beauty of the place.
