It's a long way downhill from where the tarmac ends and walking down the steps is the only way to commute. I'm a bulky guy with a very poor sense of balance and walking downhill was a challenge that I undertook wearing slippery flip-flops! Well, the Living roots Bridge was not on our itinerary and was a sudden decision - but I do not regret one bit of it!
Meanwhile, once you manage to reach the bottom without tripping over the shaky rocks or bum-sliding over the loose muddy surface (I survived, so 99.99% of you will be fine!) you will witness one of the most beautiful sights ever, and I am not exaggerating! The bridge, the rich green forest in the background and the crystal-clear water flowing underneath with a hint of a reflection of the blue sky above together make for a heavenly and more-than-postcard-perfect picture! I don't need to say more.
The trip back uphill will comprise a lot of puffing and panting and a sudden crave for beer, which is a far cry from that location! What you get though are bananas in the nearby stalls and they should replenish most of the lost carbs!
Just remember to wear grippy trekking shoes and make it a point not to visit after noon.
But visit, you gotta!
