Start your day with delicious breakfast in the hotel and then head out for a day excursion to Cherrapunji, the wettest place on earth. On the way we make a quick stopover at Elephanta Falls in Shillong and Shillong peak, the highest point in Shillong, offering birdâ€™s eye view of this beautiful city in Meghalaya. In Cherrapunji, you are enchanted by natureâ€™s bounty as you visit Mawsmai Cave and Falls, Sever Sisters Falls and Nohkalilai Falls.

We have a quick breakfast and embark on a beautiful and off beat journey to Mawlynnong which is 100 kms (3 hoursâ€™ drive) away from the city. Mawlynnong has been declared by Discover India magazine as the cleanest village in India. It is a model village which all other villages aspire to be. The village comprises 75 households with a sketchy population of only 400. The village boasts 90% literacy with no dropout record from their primary village school. The place is worth visiting as it is a bagful of wonders with paved walkaways and beautiful flowerbeds, waterfalls and the living root bridges along with hilly rivulets, Acacia plantations and last but not the least, mesmerizing view of the far away Bangladesh border. A day in this village gives you an insight into the Khasi life, influence of the church and its metamorphosis. This would definitely be the highlight of your weekend getaway in Meghalaya. We return to Shillong by late evening and enjoy a stroll around the police bazaar which is the shopping hub of city. We come back to the hotel for overnight stay.
Today your beautiful tryst with Meghalaya comes to an end as you get transferred to Guwahati railway station / airport for your homeward journey.
