We two visited Meghalaya just 10 days before
for 5 days. Its a beautiful place. It costed us around 25K
including hotels, activities and food.Cost totally depends
on the following factors
1. The hotel you choose for your stay
2. The no of people travelling together - If you are
travelling in a group of 3-4, sightseeing travel
will get divided.
We visited the following:
Day1: Reached Shillong from Tawang via Guwahati.
Day2: Local sightseeing: Hired a local cab from there.
Took 1500 rs. Places had been beautiful Driver couldnt
understand us, we couldn't understand him due to
Day3 Took cab from Shillong to Dawki and Mawlynnong
Beautiful and peaceful route. Boat ride at Dawki is must.
If you go in rainy season you can go for scuba as wel
there. The boat ride was 400 for the boat while the driver
took 3000 Rs.
Day4: Took cab from Shillong to Cherrapunji. We stopped
in between at Sohra to do zip-lining which was indeed a
lifetime experience. After that did sightseeing in
Cherrapunji (Beautiful waterfalls) and then the cab
dropped us at our Cherrapunji resort where we spent the Cherrapunji is famous for. Our cab driver who had the
awesome knowledge and was a very good person made
the experience even more enriching. We regret we met
him on the 2nd last day of our Meghalaya trip. You can
call him at 9862129589 - Rocky if you planning to visit
places in and around Meghalaya. He took 1800 Rs.
Day 5: Cherrapunji to Guwahati via a hired cab. Stopped
wherever we wanted to enjoy the nature's beauty as well
as to enjoy the Meghalaysa's sweet pineapple (one of the
best we had in our lifetime)
PSI and my hubby are fond of pineapples.
1. Getting a good driver is a must so that he/she
can tell you history of the place, about the
people to add more to your experience of the
new place. You can call 9862129589 - Rocky
he is Shillong localite and an educated driver.
2. Cherrapunji - Stay far from city if you wanna
enjoy the most. We stayed at Kutmadan resort
It was one of the best in our 11 days trip to
Arunachal, Meghalaya and Assam. Great food
and rooms and the nice weather. What else one
can ask for !!
3. We stayed more at Shillong - which is a crowded
place, close to the local market. Though i could shop for my family and friends from there, i
would stay stay more at Cherrapunji if you
wanna be close to the nature.
