Kaziranga National Park To Shillong Departure: Wild Grass, Kaziranga National Park @ 8:45 am on 21 April 2012 Arrival: Hotel Lake View Inn, Shillong @ 3:30 pm on 21 April 2012 Distance covered and route: 290.2 km; Kohora>Nagaon>Shillong Road condition: NH 37 from Kohora to Nagaon was very good 2-lane road with smooth tarmac; The Nagaon bypass of NH 37 was excellent 4 lane road; Road-widening was in progress in NH 37 in the remaining stretches and NH 40. NH 40 had the added attraction of plenty of truck traffic thanks to Meghalaya's mining industries. ____________________________ We checked out of Wild Grass after sumptuous breakfast and settling their bill by cash. Prakash dropped in to bid farewell. I thanked him once again and left by 8:45 am. On the way, my Linea had tankful at NRL outlet. At Nagaon bypass, extortion was in progress in two places. There were teenagers armed with sticks, seeking donations by stopping the passing vehicles. I did not pay at both the places and continued my journey. Truck traffic greeted us after entering NH 40 all the way to Shillong. Traffic pile-up was common before entering Shillong due to narrow two lane road. We reached Hotel Lake View Inn at about 3:30 pm. More to come.
