Mawlynnong:- Mawlynnong is a village in the East Khasi Hills district of the Meghalaya state.

This is the cleanest village in Asia, it was like a magical paradise for me. The entire village is adjusted in a small area and the peoples were very friendly.

There were lots of small shops located in the village and most of them were for handicrafts items. I bought one mat and I gifted to my mom.

I suggest If you visit this village try some delicious local foods. I ordered my favourite chicken Kari with rice you can’t believe, I ordered one more plate because I was very hungry and If you are hungry and you will get some delicious food you can’t control your hunger.

There were lots of food option for vegetarian guys also.don't be sad.

Per plate price was INR 100 (Rate may differ).

I rated the quality and quantity of food 10/10.
