Day 1: Guwahati To Shillong via Umiam Lake
As you start ascending in Meghalaya, you will notice the scenery around you change rapidly. In fact, in your 3 Nights 4 Days Meghalaya tour, you will see this almost on a daily basis as you travel from one part of Meghalaya.
The first stop today will be at the beautiful Umium Lake. Enjoy this serene place under gorgeous skies at your own pace. If you wish to go on a boat ride on the Umiam lake, feel free. Boating at Umiam lake is not included though.
From there, resume your journey to Shillong and by late afternoon, check-in to your lovely Khasi homestay tucked away on a hill off the city center/not very far from the city center. Evening free to relax and explore. Finish your day with an authentic Khasi dinner in Police Bazar or at your homestay.
Day 2: Shillong To Cherrapunjee (Sohra)
Today you will head to one of the most popular and more gorgeous parts of Meghalaya – Cherrapunjee. On the way from Shillong to Cherrapunjee, the places to see are all spread around. So, you will make multiple stops today, before you reach your homestay in Cherrapunjee.

Wake up early, be done with your breakfast at your homestay in Cherrapunjee, fill your water bottle and get ready to walk!
A trek to the double-decker living root bridges of Nongriat is an experience like no other. A journey as good as the destination, as they say. You will walk through lush green vegetation, tiny Khasi villages hidden deep in the hills, walk through hanging bridges, some new while some really old.
Pristine, emerald water-bodies will keep your company almost all through your walk.
If you enjoy swimming, do not forget to bring your swim-wear with you, you will need them when you find the kid inside you unable to hold back from jumping in the turquoise blue natural pools.
By the time you are back, you will be tired but your heart & mind will be happy! Evening free to relax.
Day 4: Cherrapunjee To Guwahati
On the last day of your trip, check out from your homestay after breakfast and drive straight to the Guwahati airport.
