A unique wonder of the world. A must see when visiting Mawlynnong. Due to over tourism the bridge tends to get crowded. The authorities should ensure no over commercialization and limit number of visitors.

Going down to these bridges is a little tired and sometimes the number of visitors is many, but this is one of the landmarks to visit in Meghalaya

Meghalaya's double-decker and single-decker root bridges are unique in the world and are a sight to behold. The bridges are tangles of massive thick roots, which have been intermingled to form a bridge that can hold several people at a time. Khasi people have been trained to grow these bridges across the raised banks of streams to form a solid bridge, made from roots.

Meghalaya's double-decker and single-decker root bridges are found in Cherrapunjee (Sohra) & Mawlynnong. Located around 56 kms from Shillong, Cherrapunjee is a must visit destination known for its trek to the single and double decker root bridges.
The trek from Cherrapunjee to the living root bridges is not for the faint hearted as it requires lot of stamina and grit to trek down to these natural wonders of the nature. But after reaching the destination , one feels worth trekking.

Although we would have loved to have done the double decker root bridge - we were short on both time and stamina so this one was a much easier one to get to - it took us a painless 10 minute walk down steps and a little more painful 15 minute walk up after ! We went in Feb - not really the best time to visit but this natural marvel was still breath taking with just a stream under verses a gushing river ! A visit to the neighbouring Mawlynnong Village known to be the cleanest in India can be done easily from here - if short of time skip the village but definitely do the bridge !!!

Mawlynnong is the cleanest place in Meghalaya and the Roots Bridge is Really unique and Local tree roots which have immense strength to sustain movement on the bridge. Must visit.

It requires strenuous physical activity to reach the bridge. But its well worth it. Eating and shopping options are ample.

Very unique place to visit. The nearby cleanest village also is another attraction. Ample parking space closer to the location. Access road to the place by car might be a bit challenging due to some small stretch of bad road. Otherwise worth visiting

One has to descend more than 200 steps to reach this place. Descent is steep, hence older people and those not in good health may find the return climb difficult and exhausting.
