Hi Sinchan,

Iam not sure if this reply is too late for you and whether you have already completed the trip. However, just in case you haven't, then here are a few useful points to remember :-

Firstly , the helicopter ride from Guwahati to Shillong takes approx 30 mins and the fare approx 2 yrs ago was Rs. 700/- . So maybe the same has escalted to approx 900/- by now. However, the helicopter lands in upper Shillong, which means that you have to rent a car and travel down to Shillong.....which means an additional Rs 300/- plus another 45 mins. moreover the helicopter ride is not a smooth one and there always exists an element of risk in it --specially during the monsoon season. therefore I would strongly advise you to refrain using the same because you can reach Shillong from Guwahati by car in approx 3 hrs, and the road conditions are excellent.

The best place to stay when in Shillong is the Hotel Pinewood Ashok -- which is a heritage property, and has its distinctive charm and advantage over other more popular hotels such as Hotel Polo Towers etc.

Iam note very sure about the hotels in Cherrapunjee, because the usual norm is to visit the place from Shillong on a day trip and touch base at Shillong in the evenings.

Another wonderful serene place where you can comfortably spend a night is the Umiam Lake ( popularly known as Barapani ) about 17 kms from Shillong. Try checking up the Meghalaya Tourism website for more details.
