I plan on landing at GAU at 7pm next Thurs 18th Oct. Will it be possible/safe to get a share car or private taxi from the airport at this time to Shillong? What will the cost be, I'm travelling as a single female.
Also does it seem possible to do the following itinerary:
18th: night in Shillong
19th: Visit Laitlum Canyon, then travel to Cherrapunjee and visit Nohkalikai falls. Night in Cherrapunjee (If I can find affordable accomodation)
20th: Travel to Tyrna and hike down to Nongriat. Night in Nongriat
21st: Hike back up and return to Cherrapunjee to collect main bag. Return flight from Guwahati is 8.15pm. Undertake sightseeing/shopping before returning to the airport.
From reading posts it seems advisable to overnight in Nongriat to really enjoy the scenery and not have to directly turn around. Would it be better to overnight in Nongriat on the 19th, & return to Cherrapunjee or Shillong on 20th, to avoid so much travel on the 21st?
I understand travel time GAU-Shillong is 3hrs, Shillong to Cherrapunjee is 2hrs?
