After early breakfast we will proceed to Krang Suri, nestled amidst the mountains of Jaintia Hills district in Meghalaya, Krang Suri Waterfalls is one of the most stunning natural attractions in India. A 20-minute hike from the parking area into the forest will finally lead you to the base of the waterfall, which is worth the effort to reach here. 
After the waterfall, we will go to another place which is the scenic hill slopes of Laitlum which are often called the amphitheater of Meghalaya. Unending as far as one can see, they are painted in a multitude of hues – from earthy browns and verdant greens to blushing reds at dawn and dusk.

3* Hotel Breakfast & Dinner

Innova

After early breakfast we will drive to Dawki a small town near India-Bangladesh border. Have you seen those Northeastern postcards having boats floating in the air? This is it! The water of Umngot river is so clear that it gives an illusion of boats floating in the air. Enjoy the breathtaking view of the Umngot River. Stay overnight at your hotel in Mawlynnong. Visit the Bora hill waterfall while coming back from Dawki and pass by the Bangladesh border.

Later proceed to Mawlynnong is called “God’s own Garden” and has enough reasons for that. It was awarded the title “cleanest village in Asia” by Discover India in 2003. Cleanliness must be its most important aspect, but it has achieved so much more than that. From a full hundred percent literacy rate to a highly progressive scenario for women, it has struck all the correct chords. “Asia’s Cleanest Village”.

Evening drive back to Shillong. Stay overnight at your hotel in Shillong.

3* Hotel Breakfast & Dinner

Innova

After breakfast, drive to Cherrapunjee (4,400 ft.), the wettest place in the world. It will be a leisurely-paced drive through some breathtaking views of the valley and some spectacular falls.

On the way, we will do a guided walk at Mawphlang Sacred Forest. This sacred forest has been in the protection of the Khasi Tribe and taking anything out of the forest here is taboo! It is so dense that at places even the sunlight struggles to reach. We will do a nature walk with a local guide. Post Mawphlang, we will proceed to Cherrapunjee and check-in at the hotel.

In the afternoon proceed for Mawsmai Cave. These limestone caves have the distinction of being the only caves in Meghalaya that are lit enough to enable tourists to enjoy the natural formations in awe. Though the caves are long, only a distance of 150 meters is open for tourists, while the other section is closed. The stalactites and stalagmites caves have innumerable forms, shapes and sizes inside leaving one to imagine as many life forms as possible.

A stop at Nohsngithiang Falls: Plunging down a height of 1,035 ft, the Nohsngithiang Falls is the fourth highest waterfall in India. This waterfall is also known as Seven Sister Falls or Mawsmai Falls, the latter being the name of a village The Seven Sister Falls derives its name from the seven streams that flow down the plateau-like feature. A stop at Ecopark. Overnight stay at Cherrapunjee.

Mountain Lodge

Breakfast & Dinner

Innova

After breakfast, we will get ready for a half-day trek to visit the Double Decker Living Root Bridge deep inside the jungle. The entire trek is a lifetime experience for all of us who mostly reside in a concrete jungle. Fresh air and nature all around, it has around 3200 to 3800 steps (low height) to reach the double-decker bridge. People who do not wish to take the entire trek can enjoy the single deck bridge that is half the way down. Upon arrival at Double-decker, you will confront a beautiful creation of mankind with help of mother nature. The crystal clear water flowing beneath the bridge is another delight! Dip your legs in the water and a fish spa is there on the house :). Ever seen those aquarium-based fish spa counters in a nearby mall? Here nature will provide you the same in much better surroundings and that also without any charges…can’t get better!.

We will start early and it will take 4 to 5 hrs (depending on the physical fitness of the person). Want to skip Double-decker hike? Alternatively, you may visit to Nohkalikai falls and Dainthelen Falls. Evening back to the hotel. Overnight stay at Cherrapunjee.
