Hi friends

We are a couple and we are planning to visit Shillong and Cherrapunji and nearby areas from 23rd to 27th August. Please help us in finalising the sightseeing plan, stay and transport details.

For stay, budget per night is around 3000/-.

Here is what we could put together after going through various forums -

23rd - reach Guahati, get a cab to Shillong, complete local sightseeing. Stay at Shillong
24th - leave early morning to Cherrapunji. On the way visit Cherrapunji falls and double decker root bridge. Stay at Cherrapunji
25th- mawlynnong and Dawki. not sure where to stay. Need to know can we reach mawlynnong today itself.
26th - jowai side krangsuri falls, tyrshi falls , naritang monolith, smit - king hut and laitlum canyons. Need help with where to stay
27th - back to Guwahati

You can stay on 24th at Nongriat, 25th at shnongpdeng, 26th at Ialong or Shillong. Can also try Mawphlang/Mawphanlur/Mawlyngbna instead of Dawki and Jowai circuit.

you will get cheaper stay everywhere except cherrapunji and shillong. See travel itineraries and opt what you want and plan accordingly. Keep some flexibility to account for rains

Whatever you decide, you would be happy with it.

On 25th you can skip Shnongpdeng and proceed from Dawki straight to Jowai. Will not be the right season for Shnongpdeng.
From Sohra to Mawlynnong, try to cover the Mawryngkhang rock at Wahkhen. But keep atleast 2 hrs for it.
Also Sohra sightseeing will take atleast 5-6 hours. So do keep that in mind, before trekking to the Double Decker Roots bridge.

What time is your flight back on 27th?
