We bid farewell to our lovely hosts from the hotel we stayed at last night in order to make our way to Guwahati . The riding however went from bad to worse as the morning progressed as the road conditions deteriorated and at one point we found a traffic jam that went for kilometers in each direction due to a muddy restricted section of road where we had to get off and mad handle the bikes through the blocked vehicles in ankle high mud. Thankfully we were on bikes and could get through, unlike the trucks and cars and luckily it was not raining which would have added an additional hassle.
After 80km’s we eventually hit a dual carriage way and the road improved, however vehicle persisted in driving the wrong way down the carriage way heading directly in your path.
As we approached Guwahati we approached a couple of local lads asking them where the hotels were. They kindly escorted us to the Radison, however with the room rate over $200AU per night we did not stay. Fortunately the concierge gave us direction to a couple of alternate cheaper hotels nearby.
We found an alternative hotel however the smoke detectors beeped all night and the service list door (located next to our room) was crashing shut at all hours. Needless to say the review on TripAdvisor reflected our experience.
P.s. Guwahati has two alcohol free days per month, the first and last days of each month; we lucked out!
The overall distance for the day was 380km’s getting us that little bit closer to home.
