Mawphlang can be easily covered, Double Decker maybe not since you are with a baby.

Also why do you want to spend the whole day 1 in Guwahati?

@karikor : thanks for the response.

Actually after reaching guwahati we will visit kamakhya temple on that same day the start for Shillong the next day.
The plan that we have in mind is like this.
Day 1. Start for Shillong from guwahati, enroute visit umium lake , elephant falls and reach mawphlang. Explore the area and spend the night at mawphlang.
Day 2. Start for sohra , visiting the places enroute to cherapunjee.
Day 3. We will do the Double decker route bridge trek if possible , may be only 2 couple will go for it. Return from the trek and move to mawlynnong . Stay at mawlynnong.
Day 4. Explore the area, then move to dawki and return to Shillong by evening.
Day 5. Explore Shillong till 11am and then proceed towards guwahati for flight ta 4pm.

Kindly let me what do you think and what changes need to be done.
Also let me know what are the places that can be covered from mawphlang to sohra and places in and around Dawki ,Mawlynnong area.

Thanks in advance .

If you can add 1 more day then I suggest you cover either Mawlyngbna after Mawphlang or do Amlarem-Jowai-Shillong after Shnongpdeng.

Places in between Mawphlang and Sohra literally means Sohra sightseeing, as next day is Double Decker. Here is the list as per the route goes-
Mawkdok-Dympep Valley
Garden of Caves
Wah Kaba Falls
Sai-mika-Park
Kharmih Park
Mawsyrwait Cave
Dainthlen Falls
Arwah cave
Nohkalikai Falls
Golf driving range
Kutmadan
Ecopark
Mawsmai cave
Nohsngithiang falls
Thangkharang park
Khoh Ramhah rock and falls
Bottom of Kynrem falls


Dawki -
Umngot River

Mawlynnong - in and around
Mawlynnong village
Balancing Rock
Riwai Root bridge
Nohwet view point
Shilliang Jashar
Pongtung waterfall
Rymben river
Byrdaw falls
Borhill Falls

Thanks.
Regarding the night stays, we are planning the following.
Stay at Maple pine in Mawphlang, but the owner did not respond to our mails.
Stay at cherapunjee holiday resort.
Stay at Mawlynnong. But cannot find any proper place accommodating 6 persons.
Can you suggest any better options for staying ?
And regarding the plan, if we follow our old plan ,is there any modifications required ?

You can try calling MaplePines. Sometimes he travels to remote locations where net is not available. For Sohra you can try Kutmadan.
Mawlynnong has only homestays, so you will have to book atleast 2 such places or you can go ahead and stay in Shnongpdeng.

As for plan, which is the old plan?

Your itinerary looks fine. You can google for guesthouses in Shnongpdeng and the adjoining village Darrang.
