Kolkata (Calcutta) to Shillong is an approximately 4-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and taxi. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Kolkata (Calcutta) in December since evenings lows in Shillong dip to °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Fri) early enough to drive to Mawlynnong.
