After a disappointing and boring visit Maylynnong village, we had a very great time seeing the Living root bridge. After traveling in North east, you have to be prepared for steps, steps and more steps for every sightseeing. This was a bit tiring but worth it. Its almost a walk down off 400 steps and to climb back all of... More

Though the village was a disappointment, the root bridge was simply great. The way the roots and shoots of the tree are trained to form the bridge is laudable. A must visit spot

This bridge is made by the roots of two trees. You can enjoy the stream flowing there. Nice location and very clean. Elderly people and... More

The hike down involves descending the equivalent of 165 stories of stone steps and a short hike afterwards to get to the bridges. The first bridge is a single story, but continue on to get to the...
