The village was clean And planned .every thing was properly arranged even logs . River park was very good specially tree top bridge. Every one enjoyed on it. The best thing was journey to the village . It is small and beautiful countryside. With the bushes of broom all around. Must must visit living root bridge it is amazing.

Mawlynnong is around 90 kms from Shilong (takes around a little less than 3 hours). It is known for it's cleanliness. The travel magazine Discover India declared the village as the cleanest in Asia in 2003, and the cleanest in India in 2005. Though I am not sure of waterfalls as I didn't see any falls there. But I would... More

There is no point going there unless there is a rainy season. Only then would you be able to do justice to the place

lovely sight, with a cool fog around, could see a green crystal clear pond from the distance. The mountain depth is sure to make you spell bound

it has been awarded the cleanest village in Asia by Discovery, and truly so. the beauty of this place is breathtaking and for a moment one forgets that it is in India. for a small fee, you can stroll around the village and meet the local people, talk to them, know their culture.

The most wonderful place you can be as a nature explorer... The scenic beauty will engulf you and local restaurants offer Khasi delicacies.

The main attraction is the cleanest village. There is a root bridge, which is small but easily accessible. The tree house, which stands at a great height offers good view of the surroundings. Its near the Bangladesh border, so you might receive cell signals from banglalink, which can cost you international roaming rates. :) (Well, I lost 100 for a... More

The village is so clean and we loved the traditional houses. There are many things to view within the village area. We got a chance to see the Picture plant, we climbed on one of the tree houses, and the living root bridge is just the cream of the cake. We were not able to see the waterfall as we... More

I have visited this place last December. The place is really clean. You will see how they maintained their home boundary, gardens etc. There is an attraction of tree house and sky walk. This place is situated in very remote area but you can find also the very well cooked chicken. Don't forget to taste the pineapple.
