Tour Plan

Day 1 - Guwahati Airport to Shillong | Umiam Lake | Overnight at Shillong

Reach Guwahati airport latest by 12.00 pm. After a brief introduction, we will start our journey towards Shillong. It is a 4-hour drive from Guwahati to Shillong. Along the way, the sights are spectacular, with the lush green mountains of Meghalaya forming the perfect backdrop.

We will stop at Umiam Lake on the way and soak in the beauty of this man-made lake that was created by damming the Umiam River. We then head towards Shillong and go visit Wards Lake if time permits.  Overnight at a Hotel

Day 2 - Laitlum Canyon & Wei Sawdong Waterfall| Overnight at Cherrapunji

After breakfast, we check out from the Hotel and head towards Laitlum Canyon. The name ‘Laitlum Canyons’ literally means “end of hills”. It offers panoramic views of the region embraced by the majestic hills and valleys.

Check into our hotel by evening.

Day 3 - Double Decker Root Bridge | Overnight at Cherrapunji

Wake up early in the morning and start our trek to the Double Decker Root Bridge & Rainbow falls.

The hike from Tyrna to Nongriat is a bit steep with around 3500 steps to reach the Double Decker Living Root Bridge, the walk is refreshingly green, once you reach you will forget all your fatigue. The living root bridge is a sight to behold. It takes generations to build these bridges.

Those who can will head towards Rainbow falls. It’s a 1.5 hour hike to reach the falls.

There are small secluded water bodies on the way to Rainbow falls which are perfect for a refreshing dip.

We trek back to Tyrna by evening and return back to our cozy stay and comfort of our beds after a long and tiring trek.

Day 4 - Caves & Cleanest Village | Overnight at Shnongpdeng

After breakfast check out of the hotels and visit Mawsmai Caves. You do not have to be a professional spelunker to get a taste of Meghalaya’s cave systems. You do have to squeeze around and crawl which adds to the fun of cave exploration.

Day 5 - Boating, Water Sports & Phe Phe Falls | Overnight at Shillong

You all would have seen the images of the crystal-clear waters of Umngot River. The water is clear, you can peer into the bottom and count the stones – that is how the Umngot River can be described during the peak pre-monsoon, autumn, and winter seasons. Now it’s our time to go for a boat ride on this river. You can also opt for other adventure activities like for cliff jumping, snorkelling, kayaking etc.

There is also a bridge that spans the Umngot River and allows for fantastic pictures and perspectives

We then visit Phe phe Waterfall on our way to Shillong. Phe phe Waterfall is one of the most scenic waterfalls in Meghalaya.
