Budget Travel

I am planning to visit Nongriat early this April and would be very happy if you guys could guide me on a thing or two.

1. How would the weather be in April? Would I need to carry umbrellas or raincoats?

2. I am traveling on a tight budget so could you tell me cheaper places to stay in Cherrapunji and Nongriat ?

3. Do we need any special permits for exploring the caves in Shillong?

Any advise would come really in handy :) Thanks.

actually we have changed our itinerary little bit. We are going to Kaziranga first, then coming to Shillong on 26th of March, Moving to Sohra on 27th, staying in Sohra Holiday resort, On 28th visiting Mowlynnong , coming back to Shillong, Staying there from 28th evening to 3oth Morning when we will leave for Guwahati.

Actually after hearing from you I have stretched it for one day to accommodate all the places.

Anyway in Shillong I will not like the company of Bengalis much & will prefer to stay with local people. do you have any other place in mind?

Well your plan looks more sensible now. That extra day makes such a big difference. By the way, you can check out hill top chateau and hotel yalana for accommodation in shillong. Google them out.

I have talked to Hotel Yalana, & they have told that they will start booking from 1st March. Hotel Chateau is ok regarding room tariff & other things. Will I wait for Yalana before booking?

Will there be peak season in Shillong that time?

I would advice that you stick to yalana and call them on 1st march itself to do the booking. And well as for Hill Top Chateau, yes it is located right up in the fringes of town just below the shillong reserve forest and beneath shillong peak and has a spectacular view of the shillong plateau and city. However you have to take into account that , taxis may be a problem, buying something even small like toothpaste may be a problem and well it won't be safe to travel late, since that location is pretty remote and you wont get to do anything after dark and I guess the guest house closes the gate early by 9pm.

While Hotel Yalana is located in a locality famous for Cafés and snack joints. You can take a walk around in the evening and have a cup of coffee in one of these cafes. And most of them open till 8.30-9 pm.
