*Any Meghalaya excursion should start from Shillong or Guwahati for convenience. Local Non-AC buses and share Sumos connect several parts of Meghalaya and other destinations of North East. Though cheap, these buses are infrequent and inconvenient for both domestic and foreign travelers. Best is to hire a taxi for a day and cover your destination. Standard Maruti 800 Taxis costs about INR 1200 (with fuel) for standard day excursions (Mawsynram, Cherrapunjee, Nartiang) as on Nov 2008. One will have to negotiate if you want to explore more other than regular tourist sites. Shillong City Tour costs about INR 500-700. Being a small state, destinations are not very far apart in regular the tourist circuit, so retaining a car is not a cost effective idea. If one visits Orchid Lake Resort or Cherrapunji Resort, cars are not readily available from these offbeat spots. Plan your itinerary in advance and, accordingly, make arrangements from Shillong for pick up from the resorts in the return leg. Otherwise you may have to face delays. As tourism initiatives are mostly limited to Shillong and East Khasi Hills, travellers to Garo Hills(Tura, Williamsnagar),Jaitia Hills(Jowai), West Khasi Hills (Nongstoin) should plan their route/itinerary considering the lack of proper tourism infrastructure (Food/Lodging/Transport/Road).
