Our reliable Cab driver from Shillong, Mr. Shankar Kuri (+919856080770) insisted that we must visit the waterfall on our way to Dawki. On those... More

As like the village, Mawlynnong Waterfall is also very impressive. The pathway to waterfalls is very clean and the beauty is mazing

What a place to be - absolutely stunning. You feel one with nature here and the sounds of birds chirping, the winds gushing in through the thick foliage is mesmerizing.

A great experience in my life to stay a night in the cleanest village of Asia. Situated in North East Indian, Meghalaya. About 1.30 minutes journey by taxi from Shillong, the state Capital. Mawlynnong is a very small village worth to visit. People is nice, smiling and helpful. There is a Root bridge in village. (Must see). Make a tour... More

Its over 2 hour drive from Shillong. Touted as the cleanest village in Asia - which is plain rubbish. Have seen cleaner villages all over southeast asia and in china. It was hot in October around 35 deg C. Waterfall is just an ordinary fall but come here to see the living root bridges - This alone is worth the... More

Mawlynnong is about 78 km from Shillong and the road trip takes about 2 hours towards the Bangladesh border. We found the place hotter than Shillong and visited the waterfall after walking through Riwai village. The waterfalls has decent amount of water flowing and we had to pay RS 10 to the village authorities to see this rather average waterfalls.... More
