Although a little strenuous to reach with around 3000 steps leading to it, this place is worth it. A natural wonder, this bridge is stronger than many man-made bridges. The river below is so clean you can see the river-bed. Must visit place in Cherrapunji!

Wonderful experience. This is something unique in the world. Took me total 4.5 hours to and fro. I took a guide to contribute to local economy. He also helped me taking some beautiful photographs :) Track was easy to moderate.
