Meghalaya Trip

Hi, We are 3 girls, planning to travel from Kolkata during mid July this year. But we are short of days. Can we do this? Please advise if we can make this better.

1. Sat - flight from Kol to Shillong(night stay at Shillong)

2. Sun - Shillong to Cherrapunji back to Shillong ( see elephant falls on our way back)

3. Mon - Shillong to Mawlynnong (sightseeing), Mawlynnong to Dawki and then back to Shillong

4. Tues - Umiam Lake & Shillong peak and then take a flight back and reach Kol by night.

Thanks in advance!

Shillong peak is near Elephant falls, you can see on Day 2

You can cover Don Bosco museum and Umiam Lake on Day 4

Your plan is hectic,

Shilong to Mawlynnong is 3 hours drive one side and to see mawlynnong and things around, you need atleast 2.5 to 3 hours.

Also if you want to visit Krangsuri waterfall , shnongpdeng village and dawki then u need to travel via jowai which will be even longer.

I will suggest

1st night stay in Shilong if you have time on that day , do site seeing of shilong.

2nd Day travel to mawlynnong very early morning via jowai to cover sites like krang suri, shnongpdeng , dawki, riwai(for root bridge) and night stay in Mawlynnong

3rd day travel to cherapunjee do site seeing or travel to tyrna and do trek for double deker bridge, you will have time to do either of it then travel down to shilong and night stay

4th day you have flight back i guess.

if you let me know arrival and departure timings of your flight at shilong, then i can suggest you things more precisely. if you interested you also can connec to meghalaya eco-tourism and adbenture and take guidance for respective arrangments.

Regards

Sachin
