Although not a plain, but Eastern Himalayas can also be viewed from Shillong itself.

Wait for more, on a clear day, one can see almost entire Himalayan range from a town in Assam. Yes, Assam. Tezpur town give a breathtaking view of the Himalayan range. Not only Tezpur, even from Balipara one can view the majestic snow clad mountains

I drove up to Mussoorie on Wednesday. But conditions were hazy right from Meerut, so much so that I didn't even bother to go via Roorkee, taking the bypass road instead. Entering Dehradun, even the Mussoorie hills were barely visible from the southern end of town.

Back to Delhi today, conditions were better but still hazy despite bright sunshine. Came via Roorkee, stopped at the canal and could barely make out the Shivalik. Didn't bother driving up the canal to the viewpoint.

I lived in hardware for almost ten years in BHEL and I was approx 25 if I remember that time. Shivalik ranges were very nearby if I remember we used to climb to a machan on shivalik ranges. On one fine day after rains I saw some huge range of mountains but with out snow appeared behind shivalik. I took it normally but yes I have seen them from bhel sector 5.

Very interesting thread. I myself once saw snow clad peaks, sitting inside darjeeling mail, 1/2-1 km before the train was about to enter NJP station. I am not sure whether it was kanchenjunga, kabru, or lesser himalayan peaks covered by snow. It was long back in Oct of 2003.I have travelled to NJP couple of times after that, but never again did I get this view.
