We reserved our day for Mawlynnong and Dawki. We asked our hotel to arrange cab for the day .
9am started our journey to Mawlynnong which is about 70kms from Shillong.
Next stop : Nohwet living root bridge.
Living root bridges are a form of tree shapingcommon in the southern part of the Northeast Indian state of Meghalaya. They are handmade from the aerial roots of Rubber Fig Trees by the Khasi and Jaintia people.They have the ability to renew and strengthen themselves, as the trees grow and gain strength and form part of everyday life for the various tribes inhabiting North-East India.The scenery around is extremely beautiful. On the way there are some shops, selling local berries(must have) and bamboo structures. We spent only 1 hour here and continued our journey to Mawlynnong.
Next: Cleanest village of Asia.
Mawlynnong is a village in the East Khasi Hills district of the Meghalaya state in North East India. It is famous for its cleanliness and natural attraction. It comes under the Pynursla community development block and Vidhan Sabha constituency.
Frakly speaking, pictures don't do justice to the beauty. It is a beautiful place with beautiful people .
We also had our lunch here in only 100bucks (decent taste).
Then started our journey to Dawki (35kms ) .
Next stop: Dawki- umngot river
Dawki river is at the border with Bangladesh. Canoe boat ride is available at Rupees at 500rs per boat (can bargain a bit) as it’s still not very organised. From the highway you can get a beautiful view of the river and few steps down you can get into a boat to enjoy the crystal clear blue waters.The main attraction is the crystal clear water and the boating. In some of the pictures of Dawki if you get the angle right you will see as if the boat is floating.
And we touched Bangladesh 😅😅
