The village is rated the cleanest village in Asia and the villagers offer Veg and Non- Veg food at very nominal charges at their home only

A fairyland awaits the wanderlust-afflicted soul, in the East Khasi Hills of Meghalaya, about 90 km from the state capital, Shillong. This slice of heaven is called ‘Mawlynnong’ (meaning ‘crater in the stone’) and was voted the Cleanest Village in Asia in 2003. Those born and brought up amidst the pollution, noise, dust and squalor of the country’s metropolises ought... More

Watch your steps while walking down towards the fall, it can be slippery at times specially when raining. The walking distance from parking to the falls is about 20 minutes. When reaching the falls it becomes very steep, so be careful. The living roots bridge was amazing, the waterfall water flows under it. The tree must be 100s of years... More

One of the best waterfalls you will ever see... Nature is present here in its full fury in season time, and being one of the wettest places in India... the village of Mawlynnong is a must... You would need at least a half day or a full day to visit and return from Mawlynnong to Shillong, so plan accordingly.

We couldn't see the Mawlynnong Waterfall but this village is so neat and clean that you really wonder. Very rightly the direction boards describe it - "Gods own garden". Every hose is full of flowers - all small roads connecting the houses are cemented - there is a sense of fresh fragrance in the Air. We stayed in this village... More

This place is outside of the civilised world of concrete and everything else. Pristine is the word. For some reason this place is still not commercialised. Be there till this is the case!

Nature's beauty at its best!! I visited this place when I was on a tour of Guwahati. I escaped Assam planned places to visit Shillong. Definitely a wise decision. This place is seriously amazing and I sometime how wonderful our eastern India is, but sadly explored by most of us, absolutely out of this world. You do have to walk... More
