A small trek to Lew Luri Lura will start the day. According to local folklore, Lew Luri Lura which was a marketplace for animals thousands of years back, during a time when animals could speak. The depressions are believed to be footprints of the large animals.

The village is filled with serene spots in the jungle and some interesting fossils. Mawlyngbna is our favourite summer/ monsoon retreat. If you grew up in Mawlyngbna, you would never need an adventure park in your life.

Once the canyoning is over, get your kayak and relax over the still waters, then
go ziplining, and if you have energy left then dive into the waters of the Um-kha -koi.
