If trekking is your favourite hobby and you are still deciding on which place to go, we have a adventure-packed holiday ready for you. The outside world knows our state for Cheerapunjee, the rainiest place on the planet, for Shillong, the cosmopolitan capital of the state and more recently for Mawlynnong, the cleanest village.

Day 03: Cherrapunjee Sightseeing Tour
After breakfast we trek to Single Decker Living Root Bridge - 3-4 hours from the Resort. Distance 4 km down and up 1000 feet approx. This trek starts from the Resort premises and goes down hill through village Sohsarat. The steps are relatively steeper in two short stretches. Half the distance is covered by steps going down hill. Then there is a jungle path going along the sides of the hill leading to the Living Root Bridge with a few steps after short stretches of sloping foot path. Moss thrives on these sandstone steps during the monsoon and makes them slippery. Back trek to resort and evening at leisure with local music placed by the local boys. Overnight at Cherrapunjee.
Day 04: Cherrapunjee To Shillong Via Mawlynnong
After breakfast excursion to Mawlynnong (100 kms / 3 hrs drive approx). Enroute near Shillong visit Elephant Falls, Shillong peak and then proceed to Mawlynnong. Drive back to Shillong for overnight stay.
