The main attraction is the cleanest village. There is a root bridge, which is small but easily accessible. The tree house, which stands at a great height offers good view of the surroundings. Its near the Bangladesh border, so you might receive cell signals from banglalink, which can cost you international roaming rates. :) (Well, I lost 100 for a... More

The village is so clean and we loved the traditional houses. There are many things to view within the village area. We got a chance to see the Picture plant, we climbed on one of the tree houses, and the living root bridge is just the cream of the cake. We were not able to see the waterfall as we... More

I have visited this place last December. The place is really clean. You will see how they maintained their home boundary, gardens etc. There is an attraction of tree house and sky walk. This place is situated in very remote area but you can find also the very well cooked chicken. Don't forget to taste the pineapple.

Very Beautiful and calm village, one can stay in the cottages managed by the villagers in their houses. The walk around the village is just awesome. Beautiful clean paths surrounded by the flower / Fruits plants on both side. The entire sight looks as if you are on a set of Bollywood song where in you have to surrounded by... More

The main attraction is the living tree root bridge. One has to walk for about 10 mts to reach the root bridge. The other attraction is man made sky view bridge made of... More

I had read about Mawlynnong and the fact that it has been awarded the cleanest village of Asia. Visited it along with my family and was definitely not disappointed. Walk through the spic and span streets with neat courtyards and you will realise the truth behind the saying that "Cleanliness is next to Godliness". A model village that sets example... More

Nothing much in this area. But you will enjoy the nature and Living Root Bridge here. Don't forget to go in Sky View in Mawlynnong.
