Meghalaya, Kaziranga and Majuli Tour

Guwahati, Kaziranga, Majuli and Meghalaya Tour

This Guwahati, Kaziranga, Majuli island and Meghalaya trip is a great choice for people who like being in the wild as much as they like the hills. Kaziranga National Park is the gem of Assam Tourism and all our trips in Assam compulsorily cover the Kaziranga National Park for some great wildlife sighting.

Trip To Guwahati, Kaziranga, Majuli, and Meghalaya

We begin this tour from Guwahati and drive through the beautiful tea-gardens of Assam to reach the Kaziranga National Park – famous for its one-horned rhinos. After experiencing jeep safari and elephant safari during our Kaziranga tour, we proceed towards the Majuli islands the next day. Kaziranga to Majuli island is a small drive, followed by a ferry – ride to cross the mighty Brahmaputra river. We spend a couple of relaxed days exploring the tribal lifestyle and the satras of the Majuli islands. Then we proceed to our tour of Meghalaya and go on exploring Shillong, Cherrapunjee, Mawlynnong & Dawki among others.

Guwahati, Kaziranga, Majuli Meghalaya Trip Itinerary

Day 1: Guwahati To Kaziranga National Park

We begin our day in Guwahati and drive through the plains of Assam to finally reach the Kaziranga National Park. On the way, we stop for authentic Assamese lunch. After reaching Kaziranga, we check-in to a lovely Assamese homestay, quickly freshen-up, and head to our safari jeep which will be ready and waiting to take us inside the national park for our first jungle safari in Kaziranga. By the time we come out of the jungle, it will be dark. Time to relax after a long day.

Day 2: Kaziranga To Majuli

We start our day really early today and head out for our second safari in the Kaziranga National Park. Elephant safaris in Kaziranga National Park are for one hour. After this, you quickly grab your breakfast back at the homestay and start for the Majuli island. A road-trip and an hour-long ferry later, find yourself relaxing at a tribal bamboo-hut, relaxing with the evening free to yourself.

Day 3: Majuli Local Sightseeing and Exploration

This one day in Majuli is all about exploring the various aspects of the Majuli island. We start our day by visiting the Satras, the birthplace of Vaishnavite culture in Assam. We explore the unique mask-making art of Majuli by experiencing it firsthand. An interaction with the artists is a good way to learn how these unique masks take shape, from bamboo structures to the final product. In the evening, either cycle around or relax by the river. Post dark, ait by the bonfire, share stories and sip your favorite brew.

Day 4: Village Walking Tours in Majuli – Majuli weaver’s village and potters village tour

Today we visit nearby Mising (the local tribe of this part of the region) village(s). While on the walking tour, we interact with the locals and know more about their daily life and their culture. We also learn and see firsthand, how wonderful weavers they are. Later in the day, we visit Salmora, the potter’s village, and find out how this cottage industry of the island has survived and flourished over the years. Later in the evening, we walk to the sunset point to witness the obvious, a gorgeous one at that.

Day 5: Majuli To Shillong

Today is going to be a long day. We drive from Majuli to Shillong. It is mostly a drive with small stop-overs for food until we reach the beautiful Umiam Lake. If it is not already dark by now, we explore the Umiam lake and gawk at its grandeur. Finally, we head straight up to Shillong and check-in to our lovely Khasi homestay.

Day 6: Shillong To Cherrapunjee

Today we head to the rainiest place on earth – Cherrapunjee. On our way from Shillong to Cherrapunjee, we stop and explore many must-see places in Cherrapunjee and around it. The list below is how we will generally proceed:

Day 7: Cherrapunjee To Double Decker Living Root Bridge To Cherrapunjee

Today, we head to the double-decker-living-root bridges of Nongriat – a bio-engineering marvel. It’s a long and tedious walk but the views all across the trail will more than make – up for it. Spend as much time as you want on the way and at the living root bridges. Back to Cherrapunjee by late evening.

Day 8: Cherrapunjee To Dawki and Mawlynnong

Today we start our journey from Cherrapunjee to Mawlynnong via Dawki and Tamabil (India – Bangladesh border). Beautiful scenery will keep you company until you reach the transparent waters of the Dawki river that divides India and Bangladesh. Spend your time here boating on the transparent waters of the river and/or doing various adventure activities available here. Post lunch, drive back to the cleanest village in all of Asia, Mawlynnong. Check-in a simple and beautiful Khasi homestay in the village.

Day 9: Mawlynnong To Shillong

Walk around the beautiful village with its hundred-year-old Church to see how everyone, from kids to elders, strives to keep even the tiniest bit of trash off the streets and everywhere else other than the dustbins. Visit the Living root bridge, a wonder in itself at Riwai village. You might also want to visit the balancing rock on your way. Once back in Shillong, explore Police Bazar in the evening and enjoy the wide range of street – food there.
