- Report at Guwahati airport before 10:00 AM. We will start at the airport at 10:10 AM. So today we are traveling from the southernmost part of Assam to almost close to the Indo-Bangla border. This journey is going to be the longest of all days. The route undergoes the transition from the bustle of a typical city to a highway surrounded by green hills & clouds to thin roads through the small villages & green landscapes eventually.
- By the time we are about to reach the Mawkdok Valley, you will experience the transition in temperature as well, going from typical hot winds of around 30 degrees Celsius of Guwahati to chiller winds of around 15 degrees Celsius in Mawkdok. It will take us between 4 to 5hr to reach the Mawdok Valley. On the way, we shall halt at Umiam Lake viewpoint; grab few bites of juicy pineapples while seeing a picturesque sight of the lake.
- It will be around 02:00 PM when we reach Mawkdok Valley; although the weather might give you sweet surprises one after another like fog followed by rains followed by bright sunny rays! Here, get ready for an adrenaline rush! East India's longest Zip-Line it is! The total length of the zip-line is 2600ft & the maximum depth is 1200 ft. It makes for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
- Post this, we'll have our lunch in the nearby café & visit a small waterfall in the vicinity. Then we will head to stay. It takes hardly an hour from here to reach the stay. The local Khasis who will be serving the dinner to you are one of those simple & lovely people who are a bit shy & naive. You can use your skills in simple Hindi & English to interact with them to know more about their culture.
- You need not carry all your luggage; it will remain in the stay place itself. We'll be getting into the water twice throughout the day. Today is all about water activities!
- The day shall start as early as 06:00 AM. Those azure blue waters will get hold of your heart so much that the kid in you won't feel like getting out of the water at all! It takes less than two hours to reach Krang Shuri waterfall from the stay. The route goes through small hills with green trees & bushes all around you.
- As we reach the Krang Shuri waterfall we'll have a quick breakfast and start the hike to the waterfall immediately. It's a hike of around 10-15 minutes that goes through the forest. We spend plenty of time here playing in the azure blue water!
- Post this we will be heading to the boating point in Dawki river. It takes almost an hour to reach there. The boatman will be taking us to the cliff jumping point and then at the end to a small island. The height of the cliff is around 25 ft. And jumping off that is a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Non-swimmers need not worry even a bit; we are wearing life jackets. As you walk down towards the boats, you will see a board saying "Do Not Cross the Border - India" towards your left. Be ready to capture the sight of Bangladesh through your windows after around half an hour. The sands that you see from here & the area belonging to that side is Bangladesh. We spend plenty of time here.
- Post this we head back to the stay; it takes around 40 minutes to reach from here.
- Today we are heading to one of the most off-beat places - Mawryngkhang Bamboo Trek. It takes around an hour to reach the Wahkhen village from where our trek is going to start. We will be having a heavy breakfast on the way. It is a small village which falls under East Khasi hills. Mawryngkhang actually means the “King of Stones” and U in front of the name is used as a mark of reverence.
- The entire trek involves walking over man-made bamboo bridges tied with cane ropes over farms, river and deep gorges. Sounds exciting? We shall spend some time here capturing the beautiful view. Returning is through the same route.
- As we return to Wahkhen village, we will quickly head to Wei Sawdong waterfall. On the way, we will have a quick lunch. It takes under 2 hr to reach there from Wahkhen. One has to hike down for around 15 to 20 minutes to reach the waterfall. There's only one word to describe the sight of this waterfall - Heavenly! Teal blue water flowing in 3 layers from one into another - in a poetic mind that imprints as a swimming pool of a heavenly angel! Before it gets dark we shall get going from here.
- Within the next one & a half hours, we will reach today's stay.
- Today as well, you need not carry all your luggage. Just carry your daypack along with one extra pair of clothing. Do wear a quick-dry pair of clothes & shoes right from the morning. Today is all about the longest & most rewarding hike of this trip! So it starts from Tyrna village - to the Double-decker root bridge - to the Rainbow waterfall in the end.
- The hike involves descending around 3500 steps to enter the valley, then ascending a hill & a traverse towards the right to reach the Rainbow waterfall. This hike unlike the Bamboo trek is quite popularised & hence you will find a bunch of shops after every 500-600 meter. The route goes through a lush green forest all around & you will come across azure blue water pools on the way.
- The double-decker root bridge is a wonderful sight to behold! It is said to be around 200 years old. From Tyrna, it takes around 1 hrs & 15 minutes to reach here. On the way, we cross suspension bridges. We will have breakfast here. Post that, we head to Rainbow waterfall.
- It will amaze your mind to see the roots of trees entwined into each other across long long lengths & holding up the weight of a bunch of us human beings. Apart from the double-decker bridge, you will come across the living roots once or twice more. Keep your eyes awake & wide!
- After 4.5 km, we will reach the Rainbow waterfall, the sound of which falls onto your ears from around 100 meters behind. And the adventurous kid in you won't stop but run towards it! That sight is what is wholly rewarding. And swimming into those azure blue waters is just beyond words! We shall spend a plentiful time here.
- We come back the same way. On the way back we will have lunch. While climbing back those steps from the Double-decker bridge till Tyrna you will certainly be pushing yourself! And that's what pushes you to learn about yourself too!
- Today is the last day of the trip. We shall visit the Nohkalikali waterfall viewpoint on the way. Nohkalikai Falls is the tallest plunge waterfall in India. Below the falls is a plunge pool with water of an unusual shade of green.
- This day also acts as a buffer day. In cases where any places are missed, they can be covered today.
- You can plan your return journey after 06:00 PM from Guwahati Airport.
In case you're gonna reach Guwahati anytime earlier than the trip starting day, our team will be happy to help you out with suggestions for good stays.
