Garo Hills

In Garo hills there are a few lakes on the road between Phulbari and Tura. There is an archeological site. On the way to Jowai there is a beautiful lake called Thadlaskein, traditionally believed to have been made by the army of Usajor Nangli with the points of their bows. A tourist lodge has been built on its bank .

Near  Rongreng - Girl in Garo hills, there is a place commemorated as the scene of the Garo's last stand against the British.

The lime stone belt along the southern slopes contains many caves. Batcaves known by that name because of great flocks of bats that make their home can be seen near Sijer in the Simsang valley of Garo hills.

Tura, the headquarters of the W.Garo hills district is situated at the foot of the Nokrek Peak, the second highest peak in the state. Tura peak about 2,500 feet above the Tura town is famous for its scenic beauty. 

 Visitors  to the Khasi and Jaintia hills can see the wide distribution of Megaliths in the central uplands. Their age has not been ascertained. Most of them are very ancient.
