Experience

‘The Rolling Hills’- An Excursion to the West Khasi Hills. (Mawphanlur-Markham-Mawlaisyiem-Mawkynrum)

The hills and valleys of the West Khasi Hills district will be yours to explore as part of this package. Start the excursion from Mawphanlur’s hilltops and the area’s fish-filled lakes. You can also make use of boating amenities.

Another location where you may see the undulating hills is Markham Valley, a vantage point from which there is a broad view of the low-lying hills from the hill’s summit. Depending on your luck, just after the rains in the early morning, you can witness a beautiful sight of a cloud formation covering these hills.

You will pass by Mawlai Syiem on the route to Mawkynrum, which is known for its stunning beauty and has drawn a lot of tourists. The longest paddy field in the West Khasi Hills may be seen in Mawkynrum from a viewpoint perched atop a rock, where a river twists and meanders through the fields. If one wants to stop by the road, Mawlangkhar Green Dunes and Sohwanthiang Falls are right off the highway.
