Day 2: Shillong - Mawlynnong - Dawki -Shillong

As we were only two persons, we need not a big car for sight seeing. I found a genuine gentleman namely Sri Uttam Choudhury +91 8575416668/9862392013 who drives a new Maruti k10, a black-yellow taxi. we started for Mawlynnong village. The bridge on the river Dawki is a must to visit. The beauty of the river can not be expressed in words.

Sir where did you kept your luggage when you travelled from Guwahati Airport to Kamakhya Temple? Is there a cloak room in the temple where we can keep suitcases/bags? we will have most probably 2 luggage.
