Shillong and Cherrapunji for 3 days!! itinerary help :)

I will reach Guwahati and go directly to shillong and then cherrapunji. I will reach on 15th march morning and got a return flight on 18th evening.

Need help to plan out the itinerary and how to commute around. Which all places should be on the priority list and budget hotels in both places?!

Which is the cheapest way to commute as well :)

In addition to what is said above, make it a point to visit the Umiam (Barapani) Lake- it has got a breathtaking view and speed boats also available for ride.

It would be convenient to book a cab for the trip. For economy, you can share taxis plying from guwahati to shillong. from shillong local cabs available for sight seeing. for return also you can share taxi.

One more thing to be noted, traffic condition is very unpredictable on the shillong guwahati route. so make your plans accordingly. Travel time from shillong to guwahati airport is approx 5 hours, but I would suggest leave shillong 7-8 hours before departure of your flight.
