Established as the capital of Assam by the British, the hill station of Shillong today serves as the capital of Meghalaya, created in 1972.
Shillong is known for nature, museums, and wildlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the activities along Umiam Lake, make a trip to Shillong View Point, pause for some serene contemplation at All Saints Church, and see the interesting displays at Don Bosco Centre for Indigenous Cultures.

Bengaluru to Shillong is an approximately 8.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and taxi; or drive. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from Bengaluru in August: high temperatures in Shillong hover around 39°C and lows are around 29°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Tue) early enough to go by car to Mawlynnong.

Aptly nicknamed "God's own garden," Mawlynnong seduces visitors with its picturesque natural scenery, cleanliness of its streets, and beauty of its colorful flower gardens.
On the 14th (Wed), explore the activities along Dawki River, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of the Epiphany, then admire the sheer force of Mawlynnong Waterfall, and finally take in the dramatic natural features at Roots Bridges. On the 15th (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: don't miss a visit to Jingmaham Living Root Bridge, take a stroll through Mawlynnong Village, and then steep yourself in history at India-Bangladesh Friendship Gate.

For reviews, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Mawlynnong trip itinerary builder website.

You can drive from Shillong to Mawlynnong in 2.5 hours. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Thu) to allow time to drive to Sohra.
