|Time saving suggestions:|
1) Eco-Park Viewpoint and Mawsmai Waterfalls Viewpoint are on the opposite sides of the same valley. Can save 35 to 40 minutes by skipping Eco-Park.
2) Khoh Ramhah is a stand alone rock formation. One can get a good view of Bangladesh plains from Thangkharang Park too. Can save 30 minutes by skipping Khoh Ramhah Viewpoint.
3) If you are not a great fan of Museums you can save 20 minutes by skipping Rama Krishna Mission Museum.
4) Arwah and Mawsmai caves are great specimen of Limestone caves. Arwah Cave passages are large and easy to walk through. Mawsmai cave has impressive stalactite, stalagmite and flowstone formations. We recommend that you do not miss to see both of them. In case, time available on hand is a constraint, you can see one of them and keep the other for a future visit.
