Kick off your visit on the 22nd (Mon): take some stellar pictures from Jingmaham Living Root Bridge, then take in the dramatic natural features at Roots Bridges, and then wander the streets of Mawlynnong Village. Here are some ideas for day two: admire the sheer force of Mawlynnong Waterfall, then contemplate the waterfront views at Dawki River, and then take in the dramatic scenery at Bophill Falls.

Plan my Mawlynnong trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Bengaluru to Mawlynnong is an approximately 10-hour flight. You can also drive. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Tue) early enough to travel to Shillong.

On the next day, identify plant and animal life at Deepor Beel Birds Sanctuary, take in the spiritual surroundings of Purva Tirupati Shri Balaji temple, then admire nature's wide array of creatures at Assam State Zoo Cum Botanical Garden, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at ISKCON Guwahati.
