Shillong 6 Days 5 Nights Itinerary

Can anyone advise me an Itinerary for 6 Days 5 Nights in Shillong and adjacent tourist places in Meghalaya(cherrapunji, mawsynram, etc.)? I'll enter India through Tamabil - Dawki border from Bangladesh on 1st day and hope to return on the 6th day. I have also planned to stay only in shillong, during the trip.

2 days Shillong, 3 days cherrapunji, 1 day Shillong (to unwind and have rest).

Dawki river water may not be clear as expected (we were there last week) and road conditions to Dawki is not good at all.

Mawlynnog is much hype , nothing great to see / experience. Instead spend 3 days in Cherrapunji. 2 days for local site seeing, 1 full days for Nogriat Double decker root bridge + Mokali kai..Leave early from cherrapunji . Pack some electrolytic drink, oranges / lemon drink with some salt (both natural and best), banana and fruits...

Make sure you all are fit and ready for bit tough trekking for Nongriat..As you may have to climb up and down 3600× steps each way to reach double decker bridge..But if you can make, it real beauty...

Must go Garden of Caves near cherrapunji...Awesome place and arwah Cave...

Day trips from Shillong are a waste of time and fuel

Meghalaya is a monsoon destination, no problem traveling in August.

Good roads, safe to travel.

Enjoyable during rainy season.
