Hi Yogesh!

I'm afraid I don't have answers for all the three questions since (exactly) same segments were not part of my itinerary.

While I didn't visit Mawsynram, it was a day trip to Mawlynnong, Dawki and Shnongpdeng. A backpacker whom I met at Cherrapunji and I, shared a cab for this long day trip.

Karikor can be of help for your queries :-)

Regards,
AK

You can proceed 15km ahead of Mawsynram to Mawlyngbna. There is shared cabs from Shillong to Mawsynram/Lawbah(Mawlyngbna)


2) is there public transport available between Mawsynram/Mawlynnong to Dawki and Dawki to Shnongpdeng.
Shared transport from Mawsynram to Dawki means coming back to SHillong first.
Mawlynnong to Dawki, should be there, but not very sure.
Dawki to SHnongpdeng should be available.


3) Is there public transport between Shnongpdeng to Cherrapunji
Shnongpdeng to Sohra means many changes or coming back to SHillong then catching a cab to SOhra.
