Shillong 28th June to 2nd July Itinerary

Hi Forum members,

I am planning a trip to Shillong with family (6 adults, 1 kid 5year and 1 kid 1.5year). Please recommend a relaxing itinerary. Considering that we are travelling with parents and 2 kids, we do not want hectic travel everyday.

We would also like to cover Kamakhya temple in Guwahati.

Considering the weather, what type clothes should we be carrying.

Another question, we all are pure vegetarians it will be great if you could also suggest some veg options.

Thanks in advance 😊

Thanks Bornav.

Can we do Mawlynnong, without staying there overnight.

Actually trying to avoid multiple check-in, check-outs.

And one more thing what all spots should not be missed for local site seeing in Shillong. Given I am travelling with kids and elders would like to avoid places which involve too much walking/trekking/climbing stairs.

Amit,

You have 4nights as per your schedule.

In this schedule if you need relaing shcedule, then some major regions you may have to skip

Also its more necessary to know whats arrival time of your flight in guwahati and also departure timing of your flight from guwahati.

usually for 4nights we suggest 2nights in shilong, 1 night mawlynnong and 1 night cherapunjee

but because you said you need relaxing tour, then its bit difficult to suggest,

because

Guwahati to Shilong 3 hours,

Shilong to Cherapunjee 1.5 hours,

Shilong to Mawlynnong 3 hours drive,

then mawlynnong to dawki 1 hour.

There is one place named Pynursla which is kind of in central, just see if you think if its more comfortable to stay.

Because Pynursla is

2 to 2.5hrs from shilong, 2 to 2.5 hrs from cherapunjee, 45 mins from mawlynnong, 45 mins from dawki.

Also there is one guesthouse named pynursla guesthouse on airbnb. which is very comfortable to stay for family.

If you let me know more about your arrival and departure in guwahati, we can plan up something more concrete for your family.

Regards

Sachin
