After receiving huge number of suggestions for my last post I've finally decided to cancel the Nagaland Tribal tour which I had decided to do in the first week of July.

Since I cannot cancel my round trip ticket from guwahati, I am now in a great state confusion about the whole fact.

Now I've decided to go to Shillong for 2-3 days, just to see Cherrapunjee, but since I have 10 days in my hand is it viable to move to somewhere else ?? I don't want to go back to guwahati ( I have heard Kaziranga is also closed in this season )..... is there any option to go to bhutan or sikkim???

NEED ADVISE!!!!!!!

As you are having round trip ticket from Guwahati, it won't be possible to cover Sikim/Bhutan unless you want to fly from Guwahati to bagdogra or Paro.

I can only think of Shillong and around that in monsoon, rest of North East should be avoided from June to Sep. As Kaziranga and Manas both would be closed by 30th June, I think you don't have much to do to spend 10 days just in Shillong and around.

Atleast to me cancelling the air ticket is best option if its refundable, else just enjoy the Shillong monsoon, it may be little too long but worth for sure.

what i have heard is that many spots in NE are closed during the monsoon season. As Kshil said, Its best to cancel this trip and schedule it a couple of months later. Else you can plan a whole new plan to visit Leh to Ladhak. Sikkim will be good oly suring jan/feb or after sept.

the most pathetic part is dat my tickets are non refundable......so i need to go there in any damn situation...also there is no option of rescheduling the trip......so I am looking forward for the best thing I can do by that time!!!!

This is not completely correct that many spot in North east are closed during monsoon.
If there is too much rainfall that may cause landslide, then there 'may be' chance of close of road of that particular landslide road or area, which is clear up in a day or maybe a week, depend on level of slide. So it is not completely true that spots in NE are closed down during monsoon.

Hello zzz

As i said, i heard people saying that its will not be good to travel during monsoon to NE. So i just adviced the same.

If you are some the same place or you have traveled NE , then you can guide sayanti with proper itienary.

I planned for munnar this april but I made a friend from munnar and he suggested me to visit it during sept as it will be a monsoon time and its a beautiful place during monsoon and it will be less crowded.

So i have postponed my trip till sept. ANd i am waiting for monsoon to arrive coz last week I got a glimpse of kerala in monsoon when it rained for 2 days and it became soo exotic.

Hmmmm, i think the 2nd monsoon starts in sept till oct. Thats means you can enjoy the monsoons in Oct too
and the 2nd best place to go in monsoon is Allepy. I visited allepy last month and i loved it, i will be going there again in August to capture the snake boat race and may be once more during monsoon.

rohan,
all im saying is spots in NE are 'not' closed down in monsoon.
Infact rainy season in NE can be beautiful, as it is already natural place with the rain, it is all green and can be very exotic. Not to forget that there are many waterfalls specially during rainty season.
Look i dont want to argue, i am saying what i know.
