Guwahati-Tawang-Khaziranga-Shillong-Guwahati

I along with my wife and 7 year old kid are travelling from Bangalore to Guwahati on 07-Apr-2018 (reach around 09:30 AM) to 15-Apr-2018 (departure at 17:15).

My plan is to hire Zoom car and cover Guwahati-Tawang-Khaziranga-Shillong-Guwahati

or Guwahati-Tawang-Bhutan-Khaziranga-Guwahati.

Please suggest me an itinerary with hotels and must visit places.

Will there be snow and are there any skiing possible in the above route.

Last year we where in Srinagar and enjoyed skiing in Gulmarg.

Except flight tickets nothing is booked, Please help me.

Thanks a ton for your valuable answers and suggestion.

I have received eILP for AP. Check Gate is printed as 'Balemu,Bhalulpong' and place of issue as 'DRC Guwahati'. Do I have to get it sealed or signed in 'DRC Guwahati' or this is enough to get into Tawang? and do I have to enter only through 'Balemu' or 'Bhalulpong' Gate?

Sir how make worth visiting Shillong. I have 1 night and 2 days for it.
