Gateway to the lives of the ‘War’ communities, a land of stunning landscapes and Meghalaya’s famous living architecture, and a haven for nature photographers…

Visitors in Meghalaya often overlook the Pynursla region because it falls enroute to the more chronicled destinations of Dawki and Mawlynnong but this heavily forested region characterized by steep gradients and scenic roadways has many amazing secrets of its own.

Mawkyrnot village here is home to multiple root bridges, which can be accessed via a short comfortable hike through the quiet, primaeval forest. The diversity of landscapes in Pynursla will stun you. From the lush, humid jungles of the slopes, you can head over to the plateau grasslands and soak in the charming pine-dotted countryside at Langkawet, known for its small lakes.

Rangthylliang village is another starting point for those who want to venture for a jungle camping trip. Pynursla is a good place to chase waterfalls – the stunning Wah Rymben Falls has few visitors so it can be an offbeat addition to your list – it involves a short descent from Lapalang village.

Apart from being the land of living root bridges, Pynursla region is famous for its fruits and jungle produce. Make sure you grab a bag of the famous oranges here if you happen to visit in winter.
