Hello to everyone, its my first post on IM forum

I will be traveling to NE india in mid October, so the road conditions might be not good because of monsoon.

What is the best way to get to from Jorhat in Assam to Mon in Nagaland (prefarably by public transport)?

If it isn't possible to get there by buses, what would be a taxi price for this route?

Thanks in advance

Mon can be reached by bus from two routes. They are

via Sonari in Sibsagar district of (Assam) and

via Simulguri (Assam).

(i) Mon district headquarters can be reached via Sonari by bus. It is about 65 km from Sonari to Mon.

(ii) Mon can also be reached via Simulguri, which is about 95 km by bus. But, there is no direct service from Simulguri to Mon. One has to reach Naginimora (under Mon district) first, which is about 20 km. From Naginimora, bus service is available to Mon district headquarters (75 km).

There are no train and air services to Mon. However, one can come up to Bhoju railway station (Assam) and then proceed to Mon via Sonari. Bhoju to Sonari is about 7 km. Another train route option available is to reach Simulguri. Since there is no direct bus service from Simulguri to Mon, one has to go to Naginimora first and then proceed to Mon.

The nearest Airport is Jorhat (Assam), which is about 161 km (by bus) to Mon. But, there is no direct bus service available. One has to reach either Sonari or Simulguri first and then proceed to Mon from here.

There are direct bus services from Kohima and Dimapur to Mon.

Thanks for the reply. Now I know how to get to Mon from Sonari & Simulguri.

Do you know if there are direct busses to one of these places (Sonari or Simulguri) from Jorhat?

Can anybody recomend a budget place to sleep in Mon Town? Lonely Planet mentions only Helsa Cottage which is a little bit overprice (over 1000 rp per night)
