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,

Shillong, India

We would arrive on 6th Oct in Guwahati and leave on 12th Oct. On 6th we are planning to stay in Guwahati as our flight arrives at 1pm. Our main concern is to have our itinenary considering our 2.5 years daughter. Is it good to stay at Chera? What about Bada pani, can we spend couple nights of there? Also, please advice where we can hire a cab for the entire tour.

You can stay near Bara Pani at Orchid, it's far-off from the city centre, amidst serene nature. There are good accommodations at Cherrapunjee also (Cherrapunjee Holiday Resort, Sa-I-Mika, Polo Orchid, Coniferous Resort, Sohra Plaza).

Suggestive itinerary =

6th Arr Guwahati

7th Transfer to Shillong, check-in and rest

8th Shillong-Mawlynnong-Shillong

9th Shillong local s/s

10th Shillong > Cherrapunjee, overnight stay

11th Cherrapunjee - after breakfast local s/s and transfer to Guwahati

12th fly out
