for how many days? these are wonderful places.
given below a one week travel plan assuming you are reaching guwahati on a saturday

sunday - visit guwahati , umananda temple, kamakshya temple and basistha templae are must see, even if you are not religious person these temples are worthy visting for scenic beauty, you have to ride river boats to reach umamanada temple, you can vist shukracharya temple near to umananda temple, there is balaji temple near basistha temple

monday - start early morning and reach kaziranga (5/6 hrs by sumo, rs 4500) , see madan-kam-dev temple on the route , if you start very early then you can do the jeep safari of kaziranga central range in the afternoon, call your hotel earlier they will arrange for jeep, you dont have to waste time after reaching kaziranga

tuesday - do morning safari to eastern range and afternoon safari to western range, these two ranges are best for animal and bird spotting

wednesay - do a elephant safari at early morning, western range is better for rhino spotting . then after breakfast start for shillong, it takes 6/7 hrs, you may go to chera directly

thursday - visit places of cherapunji

friday - visit either mawlynong or mawsynram

saturay - visit places of shillong

sunday - start early morning from shillong to guwahati ( 3 hrs) and then guwahati to home

NB: in the stating saturday, if you reach guwahati early then go to shillong that very day and travel in reverse direction .

How do you propose that we alter the above schedule.

Thanks

Hi fellow Indiamikers,

I have 5 day itinerary for Kaziranga-Shillong-Cherrapunji-Guwahati trip from Nov 24th to Nov 28th.

Guwahati > Kaziranga > Guwahati > Shillong > Cherapunji > Guwahati

Day 1 (24th Nov) – Guwahati airport to Kaziranga. Overnight stay at Kaziranga.

Day 2 (25th Nov) – Kaziranga National Park tour. Same day return to Guwahati. overnight stay at Guwahati. Is half a day justice to Kaziranga as we are planning for both the jeep and elephant safari, or do we need one additional day?

Day 3 (26th Nov) – Guwahati to Shillong.Enroute visit Umium Lake, and other places of interest. Overnight stay at Shillong. If I need an additional day at Kaziranga, will it be wiser and it feasible time wise to make it to Shillong directly on Day 2 itself, without going via Guwahati? What will be the taxi fare.

Day 4 (27th Nov) – Shillong to Cherrapunji. After early breakfast drive to Cherrapunji.Visit Nohkalikai falls, explore the Mawsmai caves. Evening return to Shillong, en-route visit Elephanta falls and Shillong peak. Overnight stay will be at Shillong.

Day 5 (28th Nov) – Shillong to Guwahati. Visit Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary, Kamakhya Temple. Overnight stay at Guwahati.

29th Nov – Guwahati to Calcutta flight.

I’ll be travelling with my wife and parents. Will be very grateful if someone could help me on the below queries.

Taxi fares from:
Guwahati airport to Kaziranga.
Kaziranga to Shillong
Shillong to Cherrapunji
Shillong to Guwahati

Is it the itinerary too compacted or have I underutilized any of the days? Your valued suggestions are most welcome.

Is any advance booking necessary at Guwahati during this time of the year?

Thanks in advance.

No Assembly elections in Meghalaya this year.

Meghalaya will be warm, but not hot (except for the border areas).
