It's certainly one of the best places to be. The majestic waterfall is a memory that you'll carry with you for lifetime.

We had been to Shillong earlier but this time, in December 2013, we heard of this village being called 'Model Village'. We did not expect much there but when in that village it was a learning, humbling experience. People, when they decide, can make any place a model place. What with cleanliness and what beauty you can see in simplicity,... More

I don't see any waterfall worth speaking of. If you had nothing to do and bored and never see this one visit it. Google will you 74km by car but thats not whay happen,its more and exciting on the way.The village is nice and clean.living root is worth seeing. But to me the wildness is something than the tourist spots.

What do they mean by waterfall? The place where the living root bridge is situated? That was very touristic and all along the few hundred meters down to the bridge there were stalls for tourists, mainly with fruit. Quite a contrast with the double decker bridge at Cherrapunjee where we saw absolutely no one because it is quite a walk... More

We visited this lovely village from Jowai via Dawki. Its apparently the cleanest village in Asia and is very pretty with cottages, gardens and lovely people. Skipped the skywalk at the entrance as it was teeming with furry caterpillars! Stroll around the village and visit the root bridges (be careful, can be slippery and slightly steep walk down). Lunch at... More
