Its over 2 hour drive from Shillong. Touted as the cleanest village in Asia - which is plain rubbish. Have seen cleaner villages all over southeast asia and in china. It was hot in October around 35 deg C. Waterfall is just an ordinary fall but come here to see the living root bridges - This alone is worth the... More

We found the place hotter than Shillong and visited the waterfall after walking through Riwai village. The waterfalls has decent amount of water flowing and we had to pay RS 10 to the village authorities to see this rather average waterfalls.... More

Visit to Shillong would be incomplete if one does not visit this cute little village approx 90 kms away from Shillong. The journey to this place itself adds to the fun of visiting this village. Its supposed to be the Asia's Cleanest Village. Though I will say the suitable attribute of this village is that its a Natural Garden Village... More

Supposedly the "cleanest village", Mawlynnong provides a whole lot of opportunities for the traveler to explore. Visit the village, trek to the living root bridge/falls and also walk over the bamboo skywalk - all experiences are great!

Though the steps down are bit steep, the view once down is breathytaking and worth the trouble of climbing up again. It can get a bit chilly though.

While going to mawlynnong I was not that much excited. It will take around 3 hours to reach same depending upon fog. Around 1 hour we were inside fog & looks like in heaven .
