Hi,

I am glad to go through your suggestion. Let me share my travel paln with you.

11th Oct: Reaching Guwahati Airport & then from there to Shillong

12th Oct: Shillong sight seeing

13th Oct: Shillong to Cherrapunjee & back

14th Oct: Stay in Shillong

15th Oct: Back to Guwahati airport

I would be thankful if you kindly guide me with some suggestions on the followings:

1. What should we cover on 12th in the local sight seeing?

2. Is there anything we can do on 14th instead of staying the whole day in Shillong?

3. We are 5 adults and a baby of 1 year & 2 months...what vehicle should we take for local sight seeing as well as for the other journeys?

Awaiting your response.

Regards,

Abhijit
