A trip to Meghalaya can be a little expensive in your pocket and a must on your holiday calendar. Most of the stunning sights are not more than 2 hours of driving time from each other (yay good roads!), and there's something for everyone- from adventure activities like cliff jumping, caving, trekking and rappelling, to just sitting down in a village home/lush resort and soaking in the sound of nature.
Note: Covid-19 report is still mandatory in the Meghalaya border to enter from any state.
So here's my detailed Guide (costs, logistics, recommendations, et al) to all the places I experienced. I've also added in some additional spots I missed which should definitely make it to your itinerary should you have more time. Go on then, get reading, bookmarking, and booking!
Guwahati in Assam is the nearest big transport hub. Fly in or train it here and you'll find taxis and shared cabs by the dozen to Shillong, Meghalaya's capital city and the hub for all surrounding places of interest. If you're on a self-drive trip, Zoom Cars can be rented at the airport/online.
Me, I am from Assam and I took a train to Guwahati and booked a cab (in prior) for Guwahati-Meghalaya-Guwahati.
Recommendations- Booking a cab prior is a good choice to avoid the last-minute hassle.
I booked my cab through a mutual friend and had no regrets. He was the best driver I ever came across.
