about mawlynnong

A serene hamlet in the state of Meghalaya, Mawlynnong Village is surrounded by emerald-green trees and a variety of flora, all adding to the beauty of this place. With the reputation of being one of the cleanliest villages in Asia, this picturesque village is a change from the busy and congested city-scape. With colourful orchids flowering amidst the green leaves of trees, you will be greeted with the most beautiful enchanting sight of nature. Apart from this, the dedication of the villagers towards keeping their village clean and tidy, will inspire you to do the same. 

Every villager contributes a small amount of money to hire a gardener for the entire village. You will see bamboo and wooden houses all around, as well as a bamboo sky-walk in this village. If you want to see more of nature's marvel, visit the neighbouring village of Riwai, where youwill  witness the most awesome sight of living roots bridges! You will see the roots entangled to form a bridge on top of the stream, which you can actually cross. Besides this, there are steps, again formed by roots and again, those that you can climb. Make sure you have atleast a full day in your itinerary for a visit to this mesmerising village!
