wondering if someone could guide me with places in and around and which i could explore by foot...

How would the weather be this time of year...

Thanks in advance

Shillong is pleasant in May. You can do some of the local sights by foot. But to see the other places like Mawlynnong, Cherrapuji, Mausinram etc. you have to take a taxi. The suggestive itinerary is

Day 1 = Arr. from Guwahati. Rest.

Day 2 = Day trip to Mawlynnong (Asia's cleanest villege).

Day 3 = Day trip to Cherrapunji (the living root bridge)

Day 4 = Day trip to Mausinram (highest rainfall)

Day 5 = Elephant fall, Don Bosco church, Polo ground, Police Bazar etc.

Day 6 = Return journey

If your programme is for a shorter duration, you may skip Mausinram.
