Asia's cleanest village and India's pride. You can feel the cleanliness and discipline the moment you enter the village. Wish the rules out there can be deployed in all parts of India. Its a small village and very well planned. A perfect countryside that attracts a lot of tourists. One should just walk through the village to experience the way... More

The waterfall is average. What is good is the Eco-village created around the waterfall. Very neatly maintained and a rural theme has been used to attract tourists want to remain close to the nature!!!

This waterfall is in Mawlynnong village which is undoubtedly the cleanest village in Asia. Each and every corner is very well organized, where in every 50 meters you will find a nice decorated bins has been kept. The waterfall is just some icing, but the true attraction is the village itself!

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
