Mawlynnong Waterfall Meghalaya- Located in God’s Own Garden

After getting out of the caves, we returned to our hotel as it was already dark and we were done for the day. We woke up early next morning as we had to cover numerous other places to make trip complete. Our next destination was Mawlynnong Waterfall which is located in what is said to be the most pristine and cleanest villages of the continent.

Despite being a small village, Mawlynnong is laden with a number of renowned tourist spots. There is a big rubber tree which has been twisted to form a bridge and we were simply dumb struck by the craftsmanship of the local people. It is also known as God’s own garden and has got the credit for being the cleanest village in 2005 and 2003.

Our next destination was the Mawlynnong Waterfall which is believed to be one of the most breathtaking tourist spots of the state. The view of tons of water gushing down from a particular height combined with the cool and misty weather completely pleased our body and soul and we could feel a magical and thrilling ambience.

In addition to the waterfalls, there were dense lush green forests in the nearby regions. It is one of the ideal places for amateur photographers like me. We captured some of the most captivating pictures of the Mawlynnong Waterfall and its surroundings. Since we had visited during the summers, the falls were running in full flow. Another wonderful thing about the region during this season is that the greenery sprouts to its best form. The colourful orchids in the surrounding areas were worth a visit as well.

We also spotted a tall tower which is made of bamboo and named by the locals as Sky View. It has a height of 85 feet and we climbed on it to get stunning views. When we came down, the locals informed us that some of the areas that we saw from the top belonged to Bangladesh. Irrespective of which the areas belonged, the view was simply mind blowing. Before leaving the village, we interacted with the local residents and the children who were extremely simple and guest loving. We were simply moved by the warmth and belief shown by the villagers towards strangers.
