Apart from village, biggest attraction is LIVING ROOT bridge. There are two in meghalaya one is here in Mawllynnong and other in nongriat( double decker). Since we saw one here we cancelled plan to visit nongriat.
Living root bridge is definitely surreal, amazing idea and well executed architecture incoherence with nature!
Nongriat vs Mawllynnong definitely deserves a debate, since both living root bridge deserve a visit.
Nongriat has double decker, hiking trail is good and rainbow falls is a add-on. But be ready for 3000 steps to hike back from nongriat.
Mawllynnong reasonable alternative which can be reached by car, then 10 minutes walk to bridge. Walking further you can find a view point all supported by Bamboo. Trust the bamboo and it will not disappoint you. You can take a look at cheerapunji from there .we started to Shillong at noon. This stretch of road was the best one. Quality roads, thrilling curves and misty weather road trip can't better . finally reached Shillong at 4pm. Took a patrol in city centre booked a a dorm in Isabella hostel (250₹ per head). Had good dinner in a restaurant in main town. Ended the day in good sleep.
