Hello Peeps

Need some help as its my first time travelling to this part of the country.

Me and my girlfriend land in Assam from Bangalore/Hyderabad on the 9th around 12 PM.(Noon) How do I take it from there?
Head straight to Shillong check local places halt and then head to Mawlynnong halt and then visit Cherapunjee halt. Get back to Shillong check Laitlum and all other places around Shillong.? We also plan on staying in Umiam for a day. (cafe umbir tents)
Places we would like to see - Shillong - Umiam, Police Bazaar, Laitlum, Don Bosco, Elephant Falls, Shillong Peak,National park,Polo Ground,Lady Hydari Park
Cherrapunji/Mawsynram/Sohra - Seven Sister, falls
Living root/Double decker bridge
Mawsmai caves
Dawki /Mawlynnong

we plan to get back to Shillong for some shopping before heading back to Assam to catch the flight on Oct 15th. Ideally would like to stay in Shillong on the 14th.

I have no reservations(stay) so far this was a sudden plan and any assistance is highly appreciated. Thank you folks. Cheers

October is rush season. It would have been better had you planned atleast a month in advance.

Still I would suggest you do Mawphlang, Sohra, Nongriat, Mawlynnong, Amlarem, Jowai and if time permits maybe Mawlyngbna or Mawphanlur.

But last minute accommodation may pose a problem.

Thank you , Karikor. I managed to find stay at pretty reasonable prices through airbnb, oyo, other online listings. Could you please help me plan the route? That's my main concern. SHould I start from Shillong and then head out or should I start from Cherrapunjee and travel back to Shillong and then head to Assam to take the flight back? I am thinking, Shillong halt(Not much time firs time wil be reaching arnd 3 pm- Check local places ) * Mawlynnong .(check places around)halt* Cherapunjee (check places around)halt. Umiam(cafe umbir)halt . Back to Shillong (check laitlum and all other places around. 6 days . What do you suggest?

This is what I would suggest -

9th - Guwahati - Shillong. Halt
10th - Shillong - Mawphlang - Sohra. Halt
11th-Sohra - Nongriat. Halt
12th-Nongriat - Mawlynnong - Shnongpdeng.Halt
13th-Shnongpdeng - Amlarem- Jowai. Halt
14th-Jowai - Nartiang - Umbir. Halt
15th- Umbir - Guwahati

If you cad a couple more day, then you can add Mawlyngbna and Mawphanlur as well.
