A Quick 5-Day Meghlaya Tour
[5 Days 4 Nights]

Hidden Meghalaya: A Perfect 5 Days 4 Nights Tour Itinerary

While most states in North East India require a certain number of days to be explored, Meghalaya is one such place that can be explored in almost any number of days that one can afford. Everything is doable, be it a one-week Meghalaya tour, an extended 9-day Meghalaya trip, or a quick 3 nights 4 days Meghalaya trip. In fact, a 5 Days 4 Nights Meghalaya Tour is good enough to get a quick introduction to this about of clouds.

So, let’s see what a 5 Days 4 Nights Meghalaya Tour Package would look like:

4 Nights 5 Days Meghalaya Tour Itinerary

  • Day 1 – Guwahati To Shillong
  • Day 2 – Shillong – Sacred Grove – Heritage Village – Cherrapunjee
  • Day 3 – Cherrapunjee – Tyrna – Double Decker Living Root Bridge – Cherrapunjee
  • Day 4 – Cherrapunjee – Dawki – Mawlynnong
  • Day 5 – Mawlynnong – Guwahati

Day 1 – Guwahati To Shillong

Get picked by North East Explorers’ representative from the airport. On your way to Shillong, also known as the Scotland of the East, stop by the gorgeous Umiam Lake and soak in its grandeur. With Umiam done, head to your wonderfully located Khasi homestay in Shillong and relax before heading out again.

In the evening, head to the main market area to get an idea of the town’s life after dusk.

Day 2 – Shillong – Sacred Grove – Heritage Village – Cherrapunjee

Today you will get a glimpse of one of the most sacred places of the local Khasi tribe, the Mawphlang sacred grove. Take a guided walk in the forest and listen to the stories of the past kings and queens of the Khasi people and their way of life. After coming out from the immersive walk, take a walk around the Khasi heritage village nearby which will give you a peek into the actual khasi style of villages of yesteryear.

You will then proceed towards Cherrapunjee, the wettest place on earth.

Day 3 – Cherrapunjee – Tyrna – Double Decker Living Root Bridge – Cherrapunjee

Today will be the day when you see the bio-engineering marvel, the Living Root Bridges of Nongriat. Start from Cherrapunjee and head to the tiny village of Tyrna. Your trek to the Double Decker Living Root Bridge starts here. It’s going to be a long day so, don’t forget your munchies and toffees.

By the time you come back, the daylight would have almost given way to dusk. From there, drive to your Khasi homestay in Cherrapunjee for the night.

Day 4 – Cherrapunjee – Dawki – Mawlynnong

Today, you will start with what is known as Asia’s cleanest village, Mawlynnong. The drive is a beautiful one so, sit back and relax but don’t get too relaxed to not take a break or two on the way, just to soak in the beauty around. Perched atop a bunch of hills, the village sits right at the frontier between India and Bangladesh.

However, before heading to the Mawlynnong village, we will drive to visit the India – Bangladesh border at Tamabil – Dawki and also experience the transparent waters of the Umnkot river (depends on the season) which also forms the natural border between India and Bangladesh, here. You can also choose go for boating at Dawki here, if you are interested.

One at the Mawlynnong village after visiting Dawki, time-permitting, we can explore all the things to see in Mawlynnong such as, walking up the sky bridge to have a look at the Bangladesh plains below. Check in to a very simple but nice village home for the night and have your dinner there. No option of eating out today. Also, on your way, stop by at the village of Riwai and visit the Living Root Bridge there.

Day 5 – Mawlynnong – Guwahati

Wake – up early and take a stroll around the village. Explore its hundred-year-old church, and the narrow lanes of the village and learn about how the village is kept spotlessly clean by watching the villagers, kids to oldies, playing their part in keeping the village clean. Post breakfast, head back to Guwahati.

Trip ends.

** Oct-end through April is generally considered dry season in the region so, the waterfalls are not at their best in this period. However, the Umnkot River is at its transparent best. Click here to read more about the best time to visit North East India.
