Lying about 200 ft lower than Shillong Peak, Diengiei Peak (6,200 ft) is located to the west of the Shillong plateau. Tourists can get a spectacular view of the Umiam Lake from the peak. Another interesting feature of the spot is a huge hollow, shaped like a cup that is believed to be the crater of an extinct prehistoric volcano. 

This peak is about 40 km from Shillong and is a popular trekking point. For a height of about 1,000 ft, the gradient is very steep and precipitous and appeals to mountain climbers. Rock climbing and rappelling are some other adventure sports one can indulge in. The best time to visit the peak is from November to June and one should not forget to tote their camera.
