Overseas is overrated! The best jewels of nature lies within India and one such mesmerising place I recently visited was dubbed as the Asia Cleanest village , Mawlynnong in Meghalaya. This place comes as a breathe of fresh air , if you have lived your life in concrete jungles! The warm people, pretty small bamboo cottages, planned walkways and landscapes... More

We stayed there for a couple of days and that became the most relaxing, peaceful and serene part of our trip. The place is so clean! People there do nothing extra-ordinary to maintain that. They have it as a habit. Pros: The place is really really clean. Homestays available. Google and you can easily find contact detail of hosts. Very... More

I was looking forward to enjoying these waterfalls but was somewhat disappointed. Water cascade was more of a trickle, if you are expecting a great waterfall (even if not exactly like Niagara). An entry ticket to see a waterfall, which eventually disappoints you, is a feeling like having been cheated. Perhaps waterfalls have greater water in monsoon.

I was shocked when I witnessed the cleanliness these tribals maintain here. They have dustbins made of local material and you can find them everywhere. The waterfall and living root bridge are just awesome ! I RECOMMEND you to walk down the fall where you will find beautiful pool where you can just sit and spend time like a nature... More

Really it was awesome experience. As we know that, Mawlynnong village is the Asia's cleanest village, really it was very neat and clean. Must see Bangladesh border from the view point. On the way to this village, Living root bridge is one of the most important attraction of the tourist. And I must say that this place is ideal for... More

Mawlynnong Village , labelled as Cleanest Village in Asia seems like a village made in a large garden. Meghalaya itself is very clean, and them Mawlynnong! It is like perfect village, with Pukka Roads, beautiful homes and gardens... wish we could spend some more time, the day when we reached was very hot and sunny and we were perishing with... More

We had been to Shillong earlier but this time, in December 2013, we heard of this village being called 'Model Village'. We did not expect much there but when in that village it was a learning, humbling experience. People, when they decide, can make any place a model place. What with cleanliness and what beauty you can see in simplicity,... More
