After early breakfast we will drive to Dawki a small town near India-Bangladesh border. Have you seen those Northeastern postcards having boats floating in the air? This is it! The water of Umngot river is so clear that it gives an illusion of boats floating in the air. Enjoy the breathtaking view of the Umngot River. Visit the Bora hill waterfall while coming back from Dawki and pass by the Bangladesh border.

Later proceed to Mawlynnong is called “God’s own Garden” and has enough reasons for that. It was awarded the title “cleanest village in Asia” by Discover India in 2003.

In the afternoon proceed for Mawsmai Cave.

The stalactites and stalagmites caves have innumerable forms, shapes and sizes inside leaving one to imagine as many life forms as possible.

A stop at Nohsngithiang Falls: Plunging down a height of 1,035 ft, the Nohsngithiang Falls is the fourth highest waterfall in India. This waterfall is also known as Seven Sister Falls or Mawsmai Falls, the latter being the name of a village The Seven Sister Falls derives its name from the seven streams that flow down the plateau-like feature.

After breakfast, we will get ready for a half-day trek to visit the Double Decker Living Root Bridge deep inside the jungle.

People who do not wish to take the entire trek can enjoy the single deck bridge that is half the way down. Upon arrival at Double-decker, you will confront a beautiful creation of mankind with help of mother nature. The crystal clear water flowing beneath the bridge is another delight! Dip your legs in the water and a fish spa is there on the house :). Ever seen those aquarium-based fish spa counters in a nearby mall? Here nature will provide you the same in much better surroundings and that also without any charges…can’t get better!.
