Any suggestions for places in meghalaya to see clear starry night? I got a chance to see that in Cherrapunji , unfortunately I wasn't skilled enough to click a proper picture. This time I'll be in Meghalaya from Dec 22 to Jan1. 


This is one of the clicks


If somebody knows of more such places please do let me know. As of  now there is no itenerary for me. Based on your inputs I'll have to plan

It's a bit complex... We're starting the trip with 4 people

21 Dec - arrival in by 7 Guwahati (N/S)

22 Dec - Mawlynnong - Dawki/Shnongpdeng(N/S)

23 Dec - Shnongpdeng - (Mawryngkang trek if possible) - Sohra (N/S)

24 Dec - Sohra - roam nearby places - Laitkynsew (N/S)

25 Dec - Laitkynsew - Nongriat (N/S)

26 Dec - Nongriat - Sohra (N/S)

27 Dec -  Sohra -  Mawphlanng


This is where the trip splits into two. 


I've done a solo backpacking trip to NE last time with absolutely no plan roaming across 4 different states. Only then I realised I should concentrate on one state at a time. So this time I'll be concentrating only in Meghalaya. Meanwhile my friends will be leaving for Assam.


My return flight is on 2nd January 18:00 in Guwahati. Until then I'm planning to cover some places. Mawphanlur is the only place decided as of now. Open to accept suggestions for places to visit and stay


.Based on the reviews I've read here and some other forums it seems Christmas holidays/ Sunday might pose a problem. Please let me know if this itenerary is okay. The places we've booked as a group is based on availability of room. 24-26th is in and around Sohra. Please do suggest some places to visit there.


Thanks,

Arunmozhi

You are doing a good thing. Thumbs up.

As for logistics on 24-25th, Im sure if you book hotels and have some sort of arrangement for travel for those days in advance, I am sure you will do fine.

As for other places to see, I would suggest Mawphanlur, Mawlyngbna, Krem Puri, Umden, Ialong etc.

By the way, how do you plan to move around?

Also Mawryngkhang can be covered on 21st or 22nd as there is not much to see in Mawlynnong anyways.

I'm not sure about Sohra but you can always get one from Shillong
