Mawphanlur Travellerís Nest
There is not much one says about the hill top Village- Mawphanlur but to experience. Located at a distance of 85 Kms from Shillong the serenity is fit for pilgrims on a quest for nirvana. The ever-present gentle breeze can persuade even the meekest traveller to surmount the highest hill in the village but only to be humbled by the glorious setting of the sun as it bathes these rolling hills with gold. Lum Kyllang, Lum Symper, Mawten / Mawkyrwat, Lum Nohkrek, Rambrai, Mawdoh, and even the great Himalayaís can be seen basking in the sunset one last time before night fall. One might witness children playing football in between two gentle sloped hills and amid the sounds of cowbells ringing. Evenings around in Mawphanlur can be quite eventful.
Around dusk, if fortunate, there are children playful yet shy; jumping about, splashing water and sitting on the banks with fishing rods. Find shelter in one of the humble cottages at the Travellerís Nest and receive a warm and hearty home cooked meal. One can see the moon rising from the horizon and into the clouds right outside the window. At night a few houses can be seen with their low intensity bulbs glimmering from a moderately great distance.
