How to reach Serene Homestay, Nongriat

To reach Nongriat, you need to head for Cherapunjee and then for Tyrna village. As public transport is scarce on this route, most visitors charter a taxi from Shillong. However, there are shared jeeps from Shillong to Cherra Punjee, then to Tyrna and vice versa. Direct shared jeeps from Shillong to Tyrna leave at 2:00 -2:30 PM from the 1st parking lot (Bara bazaar) and Tyrna to Shillong at 7:00 AM and 1:00 PM.

Please refer to Travel guide to Meghalaya root bridges for details of How to travel in the area and how to reach us.

From Tyrna a spectacular downhill trek will bring you to Nongriat within 2 hours. But do not rush it, there is so much to enjoy on the way.

What do the travelers say about Serene Homestay, Nongrirat?

Roland, Slovakia

Amazing effort by Byron's family must be behind building this house away from civilization. Just think that each brick, brick by brick, was brought here by foot, along the 3000+ stairways from Tyrna. Some people would say that Serene Home-stay has "basic amenities", I will say it has amazing hot showers, toilets, comfortable beds that are normally unheard of at such remote places.

Viktoria, Ukraine

Surely the best place to stay near Double Decker root bridge. This area is only reachable by half of day trek so any supplies that are delivered here are delivered on foot. Being in such a remote environment Mr. Byron and his family are doing a great job to provide travelers home away from home. I give five stars, which are fully deserved.
