I came across the name on the internet. The reviews seemed more positives than negatives so I thought it worth to give a try. We left Guwahati in the early morning so that we could have some time in the resort to Cherra and I was on the steering wheel myself. I cannot express in words how much I loved driving up and down the steep hils and after I reached our destination, there was a warm welcome awaited us. On the way to the resort, there was a slight confusion in my mind regarding the way,but regular smses from the resort ensured that I did not deviate fro the route.
We enjoyed a lot during our stay and this time I explored the side of Cherrapunjee that I'd never been before. The magnificient view of the rain forests made our day. On the night of 19th however, lighening struck us as my wife had a fall in the bath room and fractured her wrist. Finding a doctor at Chherrapunjee and too when you are 20 kms away from town was a herculean task before me, so I naturally called upon Mr. D P Rayen, the owner of the resort. The elderly gentleman, took out his own vehicle and drove us to the nearby Primary Health Centre where we were attended by two nursing staff in the absence of the doctor who treated us as if we were some close friends of theirs and knew us since a long time. She was prescribed pain killers so that we could spend teh night. The following day we started back for Guwahati.
Though our trip had a medical twist in it, yet overall the trip the wonderful. Finding help and support from someone in such a remote corner at nite was like a dream and teh best thing is that Mr. Rayen treats each of his guests as his family member and ensures that the stay is comfortable.
