Shillong Airport Shillong has a relatively shorter runway for the bigger planes to land. The work for extending the runway could not be undertaken due to shortage of funds. In order to facilitate the landings of bigger planes the runway had to be extended and that required cutting of the hillocks. The cost of that was astronomical. It was decided to drop the idea. Shillong Airport Shillong still enjoys the reputation of providing facilities to an enormous number of tourists and other visitors to and from Shillong. There are OYO rooms near the airport where you can take a stopover comfortably for a few days before you go somewhere else. If you are coming by air, this place is the most suitable one to stay. You may like to make the best use of the time available to you by visiting various locations of interest close to the place. Later, you may go to distant destinations. There is one Umiam lake that is a reservoir of water in the hills. It was commissioned in the 60s by putting a dam over the river Umiam. This lake was known as Borapani Lake. Sohliya strawberry farm is another place you can go and see for yourself. A strawberry festival takes place near this area every year.
