After Mawlynnong, go straight to Sohra then Nongriat then do the David Scot Trek and halt at Mawphlang. After Mawlyngbna/Mawphanlur, you can rest a night in Shillong before heading back to Guwahati.

Thanks.

Shillong was there twice to receive and return the bike.

Where else can I get to rent the bike?

Assuming bike cannot b taken to Nongriat as the are 1000s of steps on the way, the plan was to return the bike first.

Nongriat is not such a big problem for the bike, you can always request the people from Tyrna to allow to park your bike. Problem will be for David Scot Trek.

Could you please share any idea how much daily bike rental cost to be expected?

I am not into bigger bikes, no enfield etc.

I think MaplePines rents out their Avenger for 900 a day. Scooty will be 100 bucks for 2 hours.

Rainbow falls is in Nongriat. I think you should just forget David Scott trail. If you are spending 1 night in Mawlynnong, then you should spend that day exploring the Pynursla region. Also why 2 nights in Jowai?

Jowai:
At first night we would reach there by the evening. Probably with a bike rented from Shillong.

Second day, we would do local sightseeing and sleep there.

-------------
So far, we have got hotel bookings in Shillong and Nongriat(1 day). Honestly, we have not tried hotel bookings for other places in Meghalaya to keep the plan flexible. The idea is to find hotels locally once we are there. There must be some guesthouses/homestays available. Maybe not exactly in the placed we planned, but nearby.

Shillong Bike Rental

Hello guys,

We reached Shillong Police Bazaar. Opposite to our expectations we are having hard time in finding a place to rent bikes. We are looking for Avenger kind of bikes.

Any contacts would be appreciated.
