The house is located half a kilometre from the main road and in the heart of Mawsynram village. A motorable road from the village main "station" leads to my locality. The entry to the house is a village footpath of about five minutes walk . You will be passing through the neighbours houses and you may ask anyone for directions .

Presently I am pursuing my graduation in Arts.I love travelling and have been to many places in India and other parts of the world.
