Mawlynnong and living root bridge

Finally I got to visit the famous Mawlynnong - the cleanest village in Asia - which is in our neighboring State of Meghalaya. I've seen many few post doing around on facebook.
so, last Diwali holiday we - finally - went  to Mawlynnong in East Khasi Hills 

Mawlynnong is 3 hours drive from Shillong. The long winding road with spectacular  view is well worth it. 

It was a clear sunny day when we went


you will see few house (huts?) after a long stretch of empty land


it's like a never ending road


with blue and green  silhouette of hills


there are few small towns in between. 



And finally we saw the sign


And after 3 hours, this is what you find in the deepest East Khasi Hills

A clean village with not a single drop of leave on it's pathways



and the bluest sky 


Bamboo bridge sky view


where you can see Bangladesh land from the top


and the next STOP is Natural Living Root Bridge 

going RIGHT or going down - you choose :D

narrow stones pathway leading down to the bridge


Apparently there are few bridges like this one. Few of them are in Cheerapunji 


 can't get enough of this natural beauty


 going back up

Have a nice day
