Travel Tips

Sure! The Northeast region of India holds a bounty of natural beauty and cultural experiences. Here are some tips to make your visit convenient and comfortable.

Best Time to Visit:
The ideal time to visit Guwahati, Shillong, Cherrapunji is between October and April when the weather is pleasant. Golaghat and Dibrugarh can be visited any time in the year but the best time is from November to March.

Route and Accessibility:
All these places are accessible through roads and flights. The Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport in Guwahati is well connected with the main cities of India. From Guwahati, you can travel to other cities by road.

Altitude and Acclimatization:
These places are not of high altitude except Cherrapunji. Therefore, acclimatization is not a critical issue here.

Accommodation and Booking:
It’s advisable to book your accommodations in advance. From budget lodges to luxury resorts, all types of accommodations are available in these places.

Clothing and Essentials:
Pack according to the season. In the cooler months (November to early March), you will need warm clothes. Rain gear is essential if you are traveling during the monsoon season, especially for Cherrapunji, the wettest place on earth.

Health and Safety:
Normal safety measures need to be taken as in any tourism place. Always remember to carry a basic first aid kit. For Cherrapunji, pack for heavy rains, take raincoats and proper shoes to avoid slip and fall accidents.

Local Etiquette and Respect:
Respect the local culture, especially in Shillong and Cherrapunji where there are several sacred groves and local rituals. Always ask for permission before clicking photos of locals. Respect the biodiversity and wildlife sanctuaries in Dibrugarh and Golaghat.
