Travelers who visit North-East India looking for a unique experience are rarely disappointed. Starting with Guwahati, which imbibes the wildness of Brahmaputra that flows through the city, all destinations have their special array of people, arts and food on offer. In the midst of all this, are natural views, which range from sweltering plains to misty mountain tops.
Arrive to a warm welcome at Guwahati Airport/Railway Station. Set off immediately on the drive to Shillong. En route, stop by for look at Umium Lake, so bewitching in its shimmering stillness, against a mountainous backdrop. At Shillong, arrive and check-in to hotel. Overnight stay in Shillong.
Set off for Cherrapunjee after an early breakfast. The wettest place in the world, Cherrapunjee has natural sights to match its flamboyant weather. Like the Nohkalikai falls, which tumble down from a tall cliff of green. The magnificent Mawsmai caves are a leftover from earlier geological ructions and provide tourists a sneak peek into local natural history. On the return to Shillong, stopover at Elephanta falls and Shillong peak for some breathtaking views. Overnight stay in Shillong.
After breakfast, take a trip to Shillong’s Don Bosco Museum, which shares knowledge and information on local history. Ward’s Lake is small, but has all the room for you to kick back and enjoy the open-sky panoramas. Head to Guwahati later, where a visit to Kalakshetra, with its Light & Sound show on Assamese history and culture, awaits you. Overnight stay in Guwahati.
After breakfast, your trip to the North-East concludes with a trip to Kamakhya Temple, one of the most venerated Hindu shrines. Soon, it’s time to head to the Guwahati Airport/Railway Station, for your onward connection home.
