This is a tourist attraction for the real adventure seekers...not for faint hearted people... There are 3500 steps to get down to see this... There is a set of 4 bridges of which two are of iron and the other two are natural made of rubber tree roots... The main bridge which is at the end of the 3500 steps is a double-decker root bridge... Views from this place is amazing...but the journey down the steps is quite tiresome... You will feel pain in your legs while going up the 3500 steps...because in total its 7000 steps up and down... The steps are very steep at some points... By the time you reach the top you will be completely tired and panting for breathe...u might feel your feets get numb by the time u reach the parking zone... However, there are many places in between where you can take rest to get back ur breath... Don't forget to carry water and some food items... To keep the place beautiful...it is advisable to tourists not to litter the place!!!

Trekking down from Nongriate village to this place was bit rough. But when we reached here we really enjoyed the waters took a lot photos on the bridge which is naturally built.

The Double Decker Living Root Bridge in Sohra is one of its most admired wonders. Snuggled in the dense green forests of Meghalaya, the iconic Double Decker Living Root Bridge remains blessed with rain for a major part of the year. It is one of the most stunning partly man-made structures of Meghalaya, created partly by the Khasi tribe . Double-decker bridge , means the bridge has 2 decks or layers, which are created due to the entanglement of the roots. The upper bridge is 20 meters long and is difficult to reach if one is not physically fit enough to climb to the top. The bridge starts at the village of Tyrna and crosses the Umshiang river during its journey. Getting to the actual bridge is a bit of a trek & hiking down to the bridge is a whopping 3500 steps each way to the bridge and back from the base village of Tyrna, which is 20 kilometers away from Sohra City. On the way to the actual bridge, one finds several other smaller bridges which are not totally naturally held up & are made structurally sound using metal wire, since the tree roots used for these bridges are not as strong as some of the other trees. Please don’t miss this spot if you are visiting Chherrapunji for first time.

one has to trek down from Tyrna (closer from Cherapunji) to Nongriat. There are series of concrete steps and multiple suspended metal bridges leads you here. Climbing up is a tiring activity, hence one can opt to stay in the village rest and explore other nature's marvel around the village. there are lot of homestays available near this bridge with basic provisions.
