‪So the journey started from Shillong to Nongkhnum Island after we heard innumerable stories about the beauty of the place. Although we had some idea about the dilapidated road condition in the last stretch, yet we trusted ourselves that we should be able to make it, as staying in Meghalaya for quite sometime, we had already seen bad roads in many of these tourist attractions. We were driving in our Grand i10, as that's the only car we had at that time. The journey from Shillong to Nongstoin entry was buttery smooth as the road is a very good one. However entering Nongstoin, the condition started worsening. The road deteriorated further once we left Nongstoin and entered towards Nongkhnum.

The road was unbearable. You can hardly, hardly drive. Infact, one of us had to get down from the car intermittently and guide for slightly motorable deviations. There are huge craters and the car is bound to be hit at the bottom if it doesn't have very high ground clearance. We were almost convinced that we wouldn't be able to make it through that road (if you can call it a road that is).

After a tedious (God knows how much time which seemed like an eternity) journey, we reached Nongkhnum. The island is led by a suspension bridge, seemed sturdy and offers majestic view of the river surrounding the island. Reaching the island, we went towards the river beach. There weren't any boats or anything to take us around. You can stand/sit on the sand and enjoy the tranquility around. Very very small fishes are also visible from the beach which are a beauty to look at. There are a few shades made atop where you can sit and see sights and sounds.

Overall, it's an offbeat tourist destination and if you are fond of the unconventional, of the road not taken ;-), then this place is definitely for you. Also you will carry back a sense of achievement of having seen and been on the largest river island of Meghalaya, rich in scenic beauty and tranquil to satiate your soul.

Choose a vehicle which will make your ride less bumpy, like a Jeep or Bolero. Also, while passing through that dilapidated road, someone who was atop the hills that runs side by side, threw a stone on our vehicle and ran away. This caused the windshield to have formed a crack. So please beware of such anti social elements.

All said and done, have the guts and go for it!!

And I'm really confused as to what rating I should give. If you ask me about scenic beauty it deserves 5/5 and road condition deserves 1/5. So will stick in the middle and give it a 3 :-D‬

‪An out of the world place to be explored by foot. The nearest connectivity is via a town called Nongstoin. Road to Nongkhnum are not good currently - best navigated by a 4WD vehicle. Best way to enjoy Nungkhnum is to just walk all over the hills. You will also be rewarded with views of some great waterfalls - Weinia and Langsthiang. Take local help as it is easy to get lost among the hills.‬

‪After a lovely drive from Shillong,( about 03 hrs) approximately 80 km, on the recently done up state highway , with some breathtaking view of country side, and Kynshi river flowing along, you reach Nongstoin, a small town and district headquarters of West Khasi Hills. On the way you can saviour local breakfast at Kynshi with local brew, the black tea. From Nongstoin to the second largest river island, which is about 16 km it can take you about 01 hr with the pathetic road conditions. Once you reach the islands all that is forgiven in the land of abode of clouds... for the view is breathtaking, the expanse vast and it so quiet, pure and serene, for you to soak in all that you could.A lot of activity can be done from just soaking some sun to cooking, to wading the waters. At the end, A wow trip !‬

‪Nongkhnum Island is for those people who love peace and tranquility and do not mind to travel roads that are full of potholes. The place is a really beautiful place amidst nowhere. When I reached the island there was practically no one there. You can simply sit there and relax and watch the blue waters of the rivers. I also took a boat ride to the other side of the river to get a good view of the waterfall.
There is a walking trail to the waterfall viewpoint there, but when I visited the place was overgrown with trees and grasses that I did not take a chance to go through the trail.
But the road to Nongkhnum Island is a long one from Shillong. And the road from Nongstoin is in a bad condition. So if you do not ming these trivial, then this place is simply a piece of heaven!
PS: You can even stay at the island in the night. Camping can be arranged.‬

‪This is the second largest river island in Asia located about 15km from Nongstoin town in West Khasi Hills district. It is encircled by the Kynshi river and has a few beautiful waterfalls in its viscinity.
Previously one would have to trek to reach the island but recently, a road has been constructed which lands you straight in the sandy beach; the older way of reaching was far more attractive.

At the time of my visit, the govt was constructing lodges for travellers to stay so that they can explore the area better.‬
