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

more than the waterfall it is the living root bridge that is the center of attraction. a natural wonder shows its power when you cross the bridge walking on the roots of a gigantic tree. it is amazing and unseen. most people going to shilling don't know of this wonderful place. a must visit for all.

Well, we were a large group again travelling to Mawlynnong, the place is beautiful, totally untamed, you can walk on the root bridge and see how the tribals lead their lives in this place located in the back of the beyond. Life is difficult for them. Again please visit this place for the natural beauty, but be ready for some... More

There is a beautiful stream which flows under a live root bridge. This is a must do while you are in Shillong. The descent to the root bridge and river as a bit steep and stairs are constructed till half way after which you need to walk carefully on very rough and steep terrain consisting of boulders. However the hard... More
