Went there couple of years ago. Its a very easy trek and can be done in half a day or by evening if too leisurely a pace. We started at around 10 and were done by the evening despite losing our way in the middle for almost an hour! The trek (or maybe hike) has mountainous paths, rocky riverbanks, tall... More

Loved the trek along the meandering hill slopes & valleys, steep in parts, easy in most. It was like being in a JRR Tolkien movie

A good trekking option for a day trip in the green countryside. The trek can be a little difficult with steep downhill, but trekkers can finally rest beside the stream meandering below at the foothill.

From Lad Mawphlong to Mawphlong, the trek measures about 14 km (16 km if you follow the trail inherently, and dont take the steeper short-cuts in the later half. The trek crosses two water bodies, the larger being the Umiew. Not an easy walk for the uninitiated. Dont venture alone if for the first time. If taking children, a single... More

The David Scott trail can lead a traveler up to the highway to Cherapunjee. Its a 5 and a half hour trek through hills and forests of the Mawphlang block of Shillong. . Its breathtakingly beautiful with dense jungles against the low range of hills. You need to cross nearly four hills and a river to reach the other end.... More
