. Kyllang rock lies 78 km from Shillong
. The rock rises at an elevation of about five thousand and four hundred feet above sea level. According to various researches the geologists have concluded that the hard red granite rock is several million years old. The rock can be approachable from its northern and eastern flanks but remains unapproachable from the southern flank. Here the slope of the rock exceeds 800 over an incline of about six hundred feet. The southern side of Kyllang Rock is laden with massive detached blocks of rock. The northern part of the rock is enveloped with dense forests. These forests have age old red Rhododendron trees and oaks as well as bushy, white Rhododendron trees. Kyllang Rock possesses a specific type of magnetic field.
