No permits required for Meghalaya, Sikkim, Darjeeling. Special permit required only for visiting Nathula border near Gangtok, apply a day in advance.

@sugandha

Hope you have idea that Assam (Gurahati) is more than 18 hr of train journey from Kolkata,to save time flight will be better option to travel between.

Hi sugandha_13 . Following on from Rahul's post, I was in Tezpur at the end of last year. Flew from Kolkata to Dibrugarh and travelled through Assam. You could fly into Jorhat Airport and go by road to Tezpur from there. I stayed in Jorhat and continued to Tezpur. The journey will be about 4 hours though. It is quite an interesting route with a fairly long drive through the Kaziranga National Park. Some of the route has poor road surfaces.

Hi Amreesh, Just returned today from a trip to Guwahati, Shillong & Cherrapunjee. Hired a cab with driver from Kamakshi Tours ( Mr. Kunal Roy 9864047996 ). His driver was efficient, polite & punctual. Had a memorable time. Booked hotels online.
