Sacred Grove

Mawphlang Sacred Groves

Hit a detour west, just on the fringes of Shillong. Mawphlang’s Sacred Grove is a perfect example of how indigenous Khasi beliefs accommodate modern ideas of nature conservation. These thick forests are sacred sites and need to be explored with a local guide. It is a refreshing walk through a forest that has been undisturbed for centuries. Enjoy the silence and the darkness underneath the canopies of hardwood.
