Bhubaneswar- Guwahati-Shillong 3 effective days only

Hi friends! I am taking my family (8 members including 2 senior citizens) to Shillong. We are reaching Guwahati on 23rd Mar 13 and our return from Guwahati will be on 27th Mar 11 am.

Friends, please suggest a not so hectic but scenic 3 days trip from Guwahati.

Will you suggest to take a bigger vehicle from Guwahati itself. I dont want to hit and try a lot, as travelling with kids and elderly people.

Suggest good small peaceful guesthouses too.

Thanks a ton in advance

Soumyajit

Kemti ache,

Well 3 days for shillong will be tight. But it should be ok. And there are some good guesthouses around depending on ur budget (something around 2000-2500 should get you a double room in a good guest house). I would advice on 1 day in shillong, 1 day in mawlynnong and 1 day in sohra. Or to put it in a different way,1 night in shillong and 2 nights in sohra.

Som,

Do you plan to only stay in Shillong? My suggestion is spend at least a couple of days in Sohra as well. What time will you be reaching guwahati on the 23rd?

Okay. Now I understand. Well I would advice the following itinerary for you if it suits you:

23- reach guwahati. Guwahati sightseeing. Halt

24- start start from guwahati early in the morning.start for sohra.you can take the chopper as roads are presently very bad due to four laning work. Chopper will take 30mins.from the helipad u can ask the hotel to pick u up. Reach sohra. afternoon go for nearby sightseeing. Halt

25-whole day local sightseeing in sohra.evening head for shillong. Halt

26-whole day shillong local sightseeing. Halt

27- start by road at 7am in the morning and reach guwahati by 11am or take chopper at 9.30am n reach guwahati by 10.

Looks nice!! I hope this will work out and not very much tiring too....Dont have much idea about chopper services there! Which cab would be fine to accomodate 10-12 pax.... Wingar or 2 innovas!!!

Is it fine to hire the cab from guwahati itself and retain it for the whole trip!!!

Anyways thanks for your ultimate info brother!

@karikor1 : Brother I will require some more info from you. Your views are practical, hence can you suggest good homely guest house/ resorts/Homestay (within 1500-1800 per night) in Sohra and shillong area. Guwahati will not be an issue as some known persons are staying there.

Bye bye!
