Getting There & Away

The amazingly cheap Meghalaya Helicopter Service flies to Tura from Shillong via Guwahati on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. Fares are ₹1900 from Shillong and ₹1700 from Guwahati. Return flights from Tura leave at 11.25am. You should book several days ahead.

Otherwise, it's easier to get to Tura from Guwahati than from Shillong, though there are overnight buses from the state capital. Shared taxis to Tura (₹450, six hours) leave Guwahati's Paltan Bazar Bus Stand at 6.30am and 1.30pm. There's also a bus (₹350) at 8.30pm from Guwahati's ISBT.

A taxi day trip to Nartiang from Shillong costs around ₹3000.
