3 Nights 4 Days Meghalaya Tour – Shillong, Cherrapunjee and Dawki

3 Nights 4 Days Meghalaya Tour Plan

This detailed 3 Nights 4 Days Meghalaya Tour plan takes you through most of the must-visit places in and around Shillong, Cherrapunjee, Mawlynnong, and Dawki

Day 1: Guwahati To Shillong via Umiam Lake

As you ascend to 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 to another.

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 Umiam Lake, feel free. Boating at Umiam Lake is not included though but you can always pay there directly and enjoy the same.

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 gorgeous parts of Meghalaya – Cherrapunjee. On the way from Shillong to Cherrapunjee, the places to see are spread around. So, you will make multiple stops today, before you reach your homestay in Cherrapunjee.
By the end of the day, depending on your pace and taste, you would have visited the following places to see in Cherrapunjee:

Day 3: Cherrapunjee To Double Decker Living Root Bridge Trek To Cherrapunjee

Wake up early, be done with your breakfast at your homestay in Cherrapunjee, fill your water bottle, and get ready to walk!

Just like many other treks in Meghalaya, a trek to the double-decker living root bridges of Nongriat is an experience like no other. The journey is as good as the destination, as they say. You will walk through lush green vegetation, and tiny Khasi villages hidden deep in the hills, and stroll through hanging bridges, some new while some really old.

Pristine, emerald water-bodies will keep you company almost all through your walk.
If you enjoy swimming, do not forget to bring your swimwear 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 Dawki, to witness the crystal clear waters of the Umngkot river at Dawki (this is not possible during the monsoon season as the water is muddy). You can go boating (not included) on the river and boat to Ziro Point, where India and Bangladesh meet.

From there drive down straight to Guwahati to catch your flight back home :-).

Fly out with a lifetime of memories of your 3 Nights 4 Days Meghalaya trip.
