My few cents fellow traveler :)

First thing Cherrapunji is perfectly safe place to stay, We stayed for 3 nights in By The Way ;)

people there are very cooperative and nice. Important things which I learned after visiting Shillong/Cherra

1. Root bridge trek is not easy as it seems, you need full day for it and good rest in night to half recover!! (Start calf muscle exercise). It would be better to stay put in Cherra.

2. If you get an opportunity spend one night in Mawlynnong homestays. We missed the chance and yeah regretting it!!

As correctly mentioned by Vaibhav, visiting the Double Decker root brige is a long trek. If you are on a family vacation, you can skip that and visit the Single Decker root bridge at Mawlynong, which is easily accessible.

25-Jan: go for the long trek (approx 5hrs) to Nongriat village to see the Double Decker root bridge. Return to Cherrapunjee by sunset.

26-Jan: Cherrapunjee to Mawlynong (2hrs), Mawlynong to Shillong (3hrs)
