How to Reach Meghalaya

How to get there by Air

The nearest major airport is the Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport in Guwahati (Assam), which is well connected by air with New Delhi, Calcutta, Mumbai and Chennai. A four-hour scenic drive up the hills will get you to Shillong from Guwahati airport. Rent a car and cab facilities are available from the airport. There are, however, no direct bus connections from Guwahati Airport to Shillong.

How to get there by Rail

The nearest railhead is Guwahati (Assam), which is well connected to the rest of the country. There are train services from Calcutta, New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Cochin and Trivandrum.

How to get there by Road

Meghalaya is accessible by road from Assam at various points on the border between these two states. The National Highway 40 connects New Delhi and other major cities in India to Meghalaya. The roads are good and well frequented with traffic moving to and fro. However, do watch out for the heavy monsoon season which slows you down on the roads.
