After a day of trekking and resting, the next one is all about the journey. The gleaming highway between Tura and Shillong is one of the most beautiful in the region. You will be accompanied by undisturbed stretches of forests at many times. The terrain changes from the lush landscapes of the Garo Hills to the highland meadows and pine groves of the West Khasi Hills. It is usually a six-hour journey but we recommend stops at Nongstoin or Mairang towns where you can sample some local cuisine.
