LAITLUM: THE LUSH GREEN CANYON AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD

Updated: Sep 2, 2022

Laitlum is a less explored wonder in East Khasi Hills, near Shillong, India. The lush green Laitlum Canyon viewpoint appears at the steep end of the plane land. Often the black clouds happily rest on the mountain top to offer you a splendid view.


But after disappearance of the floating clouds when the shined sun falls on the prominent curves you must feel more than a dreamland.


Strange life at the edge of the world


The literal meaning of Laitlum is “end of the world”, this is because Laitlum canyon viewpoint appears at the edge of the land. It is 180-degree steep down far below, where you can reach by covering 3000 steps.


Standing at the edge you’ll see a village far below and a stream flowing through the middle of the canyon. There is a rope rope-way from the top to the village, which supplies the urgent needs to the village. Besides, 3000 stone made stair steps connect the real humans of the village to the edge of the world (Laitlum viewpoint). If you are interested you can try a trek.
