Hi All,

Am planning a trip to Meghalaya in December first week. From Dec 3rd to Dec 10th. It would of great help if you could suggest an itinerary for this.
I have few queries which I have listed below. It would be of immense help if you could answer those.

1. Since Meghalaya is the land of waterfalls, I would like to know whether it's a good time to visit the place, cause I came across few posts saying water gets dried up in most of the waterfalls in December.

2.Also it would be of great help if you could suggest some hidden, non-touristy waterfalls that I could visit during the trip (the one which preferably has enough water).

3. Would like to know where Weisawdong waterfalls is located. Am not able to locate it on maps nor on any blogs. Anyone who knows how to reach this destination, kindly help.

4. Could we take bikes on rental to travel within the state? ( preferably Enfield/avenger) If so how much will it cost. kindly share the number of the contact person or the name of the shop.

Thanks in advance

1. The major falls will still have some water in them. But December is more a month for caving, trekking and water sports.

2. Wah Rashi falls, Tyrshi falls, Rinji falls, Byrdaw falls, Thum falls, the various falls in Garden of Caves, etc etc

3. You can contact Wann Majaw from facebook.

4. Yes you cab. Should be about 1200-1500 a day without fuel.

You can google AutoRides. Even James from MaplePine Farms rents out an Avenger and a Himalayan

Also, it would be helpful if you could tell me whether we could reach Krang suri waterfalls from Dwaki. As per the maps, it shows 1.5 hours of travel time from Dwaki to this place, but wanted to know if there is a proper route to this place.

This is brilliant! Thank you so much. I had contacted Wann Majaw on facebook giving you as reference. Will this sohra tour agency take private tours also? Is this page managed by Wann Majaw?

5pm is fine. The point being why cover the same way twice.

Shnongpdeng - Shillong - Guwahati Airport = 205km

Shnongpdeng - Jowai - Guwahati Airport = 240km

So not much difference.

Jowai is just 30km from Amlarem. It is the main centre of the Jaintia Hills.

Things to see in between Shnongpdeng -Jowai - Guwahati Airport-

Krangsuri falls
Syndai Cave
Rupasor Bathing Ghat
Thluamwi falls and stone bridge
Syntu Ksiar
Ialong Park
Tyrchi falls
Thadlaskein lake
Nartiang Monoliths
Nartiang Durga temple

Why don't you fly from SHillong AIrport to Kolkata and then catch connecting flight?
