You have to descend down a long series of stairs and forest area to reach this place. The trek itself is really nice and you are surrounded by greenery throughout. There is one small shope about half way throught the trek and you can have some refreshments here. You also get a smaller living root bridge very near to the... More

Its a great place to visit if you wanted to see a wonder which is man-made but natural. Also the trail to reach the Nongriat village where this living root bridge exits is one of the most stunning and beautiful that i have seen. A must visit for every traveler.

Root bridge.. first of all you will be mesmerised by the way before you reach here. Second the bridge itself a natural wonder. Beneath the bridge is a small river flow which is beautiful in itself. There are many high view points but it requires lot of stairs and walking. Try the pineapple here .. it's the best pineapple I... More

No it didn't birth the other root bridges of Meghalaya, and not all titles are to be taken literally. Please do read a review of this bridge before attempting. My review.. any review... And trust them. When I read on TripAdvisor that the root ridge has 3500 steps each side, I assumed it was a exaggeration by locals to pump... More

We had this on our list based on the reviews and it was much more than what we had expected. The trek to double decker root bridge starts about 5km from cherapunjee holiday resort which can be done by car and then 3km trek by foot. For the convenience of travellers concrete steps have been constructed under MNREGA and that... More

The day I decided we were going to Cherrapunji was because of this trek. We started from Guwahati in a car and the moment I told my driver about the trek, my driver started saying many reasons not to go. I was confused as this was my first trek but yeah determined to trek. I booked a guide and started... More
