The water falls are very High / Deep .... you get a viewpoint from the top and from there you may descend using a wellbuilt staircase to see it from a nearer place.... However, water is scarce in December, so, only very low amount of water seen falling during our visit.... should be a very good view during monsoons. Still,... More

Not very good waterfall.As the time we did visit the waterfall was dry and hence we did not find any water there.It was looking bad and almost like deserted.

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
