About Riwai Village
At Riwai; one can witness the ingenuity of the Khasi people. The Khasis have engineered the young roots of the Ficus trees on either side of gullies and brooks to grow through bamboos spanning the banks. The roots have taken hold on either side over years, forming a natural bridge; the famed — Living Root Bridges of Meghalaya. With time, stones have got lodged into the entwined roots. These bridges grow stronger with time unlike others; blending with the surrounding jungle landscape becoming a part of the scenery itself. There are many such bridges strewn across the forests of Meghalaya but the one at Riwai is the most easily accessible; the others requiring hours of trek through ancient trails known as the King’s Way. The King’s Way have kept the centuries old betel nut alive with the capital Shillong. The place also offers the village kids a natural pool to have a bath and splash about during the summers. It is a place of stunning beauty, with sunlight streaking down through the lush canopy amidst fluttering butterflies, the roots overgrown with moss and dangling creepers; an unique wedlock of natural bounty and human cognizance.

Mawkdok Dympep Valley
We found one, at our desired price and finally after a two hour tiring journey we reached Cherrapunji. After reaching there and without wasting any time our cab driver took us to the first view point which was The Mawkdok Dympep Valley View it was a place where one can enjoy the view of a valley with trees and a small stream flowing somewhere at the bottom of the valley which we were only able to hear and also a spot for good profile pictures.
