Hi Indiamikers, I intend to visit Shillong & Cherrapunjee & adjoining areas with my family (total 5 adults) on 16th to 21st September this year (4 and half days).

Now first, I want to take flight to & from shillong unlike most of the people who takes fight to & from guwahati. Is there any problem or disadvantage with flight to & from shillong itself, except of course more budget.

Secondly, I want any Indiamikers including great Karikor, to make a detailed plan of tour for me. Without any prejudice. My only wanting is to avoid extreme trekking or hiking and very long hectic car riding (in bad road conditions), because one of my family members is a patient of spondylitis. We just want to enjoy the beauty of the state. We also want to cover as many places as possible of great beauty. I also intend to have some interaction with local people.

Third, I also welcome suggestions on hotel/homestay/place of stay and transport (contact no of any drivers).

Lastly, my total budget is around INR 35,000 for 5 persons excluding airfare. Is it sufficient or I should allocate more or less for the tour?

Thank you all. A Jana.

I forgot to mention, will it be wise to take flight to & from guwahati to save some money and spend on the tour itself for better experience?

You can always fly to Guwahati and take the early morning flight and also return by the last flight from Guwahati, so that you atleast will be able to use those 2 days..

As for your trip. Keep it simple since you have only 5-6 days in hand.

16 - Reach guwahati. Proceed to Shillong. Halt
17 - Proceed to Sohra via Mawphlang. Halt
18 - Proceed to Mawlynnong/Shnongpdeng. Halt
19 - Proceed to Jowai. Halt
20 - Proceed to Shillong / Umden. Halt
21 - Proceed to Guwahati to catch return flight

Hi karikor, will you please guide me at which places I should night halt and should I book in advance there? I prefer good location with affordable rate.
Also what about transport? I want a personal vehicle (for 5 a car may be enough) rather than public transport. Can you kindly provide a good driver information? Is it possible to hire one car for the whole tour (from airport to airport)?
