Shillong is possible to visit 4-5 hours one-way.
Guwahati has Dash-Maha-vidyas temple too,I've been to Bhubaneshwari's 2 decades back and the temple pujaari sang beautiful hymns.Some saptarshi probably Atri's and his wifes Asrams are also located few Kms on river bank,worth visiting.At Kamakshya,Chakreshwar Panda was known as a reputed Tantric,but then at the back of the hillock there use to be a South-Indian Tantrik by nominclature of Duss-nambari-baba.May be he is still there with his chilam,looked to know deep routes of mysticism.
Town inside Bhutan via Rangia is alos possible ,its a market besides Bauddha temple.They permit upto few Kms.
After sun-set,its not advisable to be out.
Faded ideas of Fancy Bazar,Police Bazar,Sharma Bhojnalaya,stock exchange etc.which makes it like Generalganj of Kanpur or Chandani-chowk like crowded.

Located on the bank of the Brahmaputra, Guwahati is the gateway to north eastern India and to Assam.

Sights include the Kamakhya Temple on Nilachal Hill, eight km west of the city, the Navagraha temple on Chitrachal Hill to the east of the town and Umananda Temple on Peacock island in the midst of river Brahmaputra. Ferries make regular crossings from 7am to 5pm. The site is especially busy during the annual Shivaratri festival, when devotees from all over the state come to worship the god.

The Assam State Museum is also worth a visit. It has collections of archaeology, sculpture, paintings, metal, ivory and woodwork, costumes and ethnology. There are exhibits of reconstructed huts of Assamese tribes.
