Mawshamok 1/undefined by Tripoto


A small village in the East Khasi Hills District of Shella Bholaganj. It is an extremely backward place where people even lack basic amenities available to people in other places. The rustic atmosphere and the simplicity of people are in themselves attractions. You can come here for a day tour and interact with the locales to know more about their culture and lifestyles. The village is covered with dense forests and looks even more beautiful during monsoons.

Downhill from Cherrapunji is Mawshamok. This place has a number of 'living root' bridges that the ingenious Khasi people have trained to span the streams and provide 'living' pathways or bridges between isolated villages. We were invited by a lovely Khasi family and spending time with them was a splendid experience. Once the skies cleared, we enjoyed the lively weekly market and arranged transport to the stunning natural sites in the area.
