It is about three to four hours journey by road from the Guwahati Railway Station as well as the Guwahati International Airport of the Assam State in India. Taxis and buses are readily available from these locations. Airport also exists in Shillong; however flight connectivity is on selected days and unpredictable due to weather conditions.
