I've moved your post to Meghalaya forum. It's not OFTB, many threads here, scroll down or go to the meghalaya subforum and see for yourself. Post a rough cut and karikor can refine that. If you're going in last week December, plenty of other IMers are going there too.

Thanks Karikor, was planning end of November. Supposed to be back packing but I have no idea of the kind of transport available between places. I had a rough itinerary as follows Shilling (1N), cherapunji (2n), day trip to nongrait and overnight at Mawlynong(2N), shilling (1n). I also have an interest in caves. I have given to believe there are lovely caves near Cherapunji. Do let me know if I can add anything and do correct me if anything does not seem right.
Can you also tell me how safe is Shillong for Single ladies to travel.

Shillong is safer than Mumbai especially for ladies. Part of the genes caused by matrillineal society.

8 nights you can cover so many places.
Shillong, Mawphlang, Mawlyngbna, Mawphanlur, Sohra, Nongriat, Mawlynnong, Shnongpdeng, Amlarem, Jowai etc.

Do you ride a scooty?

Good to know its safe Naah I don't ride a scooty. Are there shared jeeps that go from one city to other? or are there buses. I surely do want to spend at least 7-8 nights and get the feel of all locations...hush hush wont do any justice to the beauty of Meghalaya.

I will read through all the places you have mentioned as I want to do some cave visits, lakes and waterfalls

Ok. No worries.
Trip will have to be planned as per the bus / sump timings. A little tricky. May have to adjust. Will have to optimize with whatever possible.

Think is you may have to get down at a particular point and catch another vehicle. Will be somewhat cumbersome.

Since most of the shared sumos and buses will travel from Shillong to village x and back or Shillong to village y and back but not from village x to village y and back.

SO you may have to get down at certain intersections.
