Mawlingnong is Asia's cleanest village. it is indeed clean and looks like a toy village with colorful flowers and gardens all around. though there is not much of good place for a night stay, but the place is too good for a day's visit. there is a living root bridge nearby with a small waterfall beneath. the air around is...

The landscape from shillong to Mawlynnong was great, we enjoyed the 2 hour drive with beautiful hills, scenery and clouds. 3 kms before we reach Mawlynnong village, there is a signboard that says NOWHET view point. By chance we visited this place and we didnt regret the visit for it had one of the breath taking reviews over a bamboo... More

If you are not going to trek to the double decker bridge in cherrapunjee then you can't miss this. anyway when you go to visit the cleanest village you'll be here so might as well go here.

We visit in april. The main attraction is root bridge and village. Both are quite good. It's a day tour for us we leave from shillong early morning and back to shillong in evening 6:00 PM. 2.5 hr journey but road was excellent.

This beautiful village is a great place to switch off from city life and enjoy a beautiful relaxing environment. They call it "The cleanest village in Asia" and it does look clean, unpolluted and also offers stunning natural beauty. I visited for a few hours, but would love to stay here for a few nights in one of the many... More

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!!!
