Please help to plan a trip in mid july for 6N/7D

Hi,

I will be travelling with 2 kids 12 years and 9 years and 2 elderly persons in mid July 18th onwards. Please help me to make an itinerary for Guwahati, Shillong, Cherrapunge , or any other place suggestions are welcomed.

Do I book the hotel and cars separately, or do I go with the packaged tour? Will prefer to avoid too long car journey at one stretch.

Thanks in advance,

Monsoon will start in Assam and Meghalaya from mid June. Hence the itinerary should be workout accordingly. In Assam you can spend 2 days in a tea estate at leisure. For Meghalaya - 2 days in Shillong, 1 day in Cherrapunjee and 1 day in Mawlynnong (cleanest village of Asia).
