Hello Mikers,

We are planning a trip to Nort East in the month of March.

Here's the Itinerary for the same:

Q1. I would need assistance from this forum in getting contacts of good cabbies or cab services for the entire trip, i.e. from Guwahati to Tawang.

We are thinking of hiring a cab from Guwahati itself which can drive us through Shillong up til Tawang and the return journey.

It would be really helpful if we can get some mail ids/contact numbers to whom we can send our itinerary to and get quotations from them regarding prices.

Any rough estimates of the costs we are most likely to incur as per the itinerary?

Q2. Which is the best place to get our ILPs considering the above itinerary? Are ILPs issued on the spot at Guwahati airport on weekends or is there any waiting period (will be landing there on Saturday morning) or shall we be asking our cabby to arrange the same for us or can we take the risk of collecting it either in Shillong or Bhalukpong?

Q3. What kind of weather is to be expected in Guwahati and Kaziranga in early March? Am I correct in presuming it might be hot and sticky even at that time as well, unlike Shillong and Tawang where we are expecting something very contrasting.

Q4. How much crowd shall we expect in Kamakhya temple on a Saturday afternoon? As per some people, it is not that crowded in March. But I'm not sure if that's true! Is the crowd there dependent on the day or a month you visit on?

We are planning to visit Kamakhya temple on Saturday afternoon and we intend to reach Shillong later that night. Is it doable or is there an element of risk involved?

Q5. If not Kamakhya what are some other places in Guwahati which we can visit that afternoon and reach Shillong later that night?

Q6. What are some good and affordable hotels in Kaziranga for a night's stay?

Apart from this, any other suggestions for our trip are most welcome!

Warm Regards,

1. For cab rental you may try Mr Nayan Kalita-9706663242.I had availed his service for my Tawang trip.His service is good and economical.You may contact him for the quotes.

Besides this there are other travel agents like Red River Tours and Travels(0361 273 8005),Natural Holidays(098645 11081)

2. ILP can be obtained from Bhalukpong on 7th March also.The time taken is around 30 mins to issue the ILP.

3. If you buy VIP tickets you can have darshan within 1 and half hours.
For general darshan ,normal turn around time is 3 to 4 hours.

5. Affordable and recommended will be Bon Habi priced around Rs 2200 or you may try Bora home stay @ Rs 1000.
