“A wonderful place”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

If you are willing to see this place, I advice you to go there early morning since before 12am there is hardly any people overthere. The path is stiff but the scenary really worth the efforts. Don't forget to bring a towel with you since the river which flows under the bridge is so clean that it will make you willing to jump into it.

“Nature @ It's Best !!”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Must See - Nature's Creativity at its best !! Also Asia's Cleanest Village is pretty near to it so you can club both and visit them. Not much of a walk however awesome to see.

“natural bridge”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

We should go to this place, if you are little bit afraid please take a guide. This is very near from Cherrapunjee Hotel Resort. You have to go down for this place, even you can use this bridge to go to the opposite side.

“Must visit - best trek - highly recommended”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

If there is only 1 thing that you must do in your Cherapunji visit is the trek to the double root bridge. We did the Double root bridge trek immediately after our bhutan visit where we did the trek to Tigers Nest. I must say that Double root bridge was definitely twice as better than Tigers Nest Bhutan. Plan your travel in such a way that you start the trek in the morning - come back same day late afternoon and then either stay back in Cherapunji or head towards Shillong for a night stay. The trek takes you down to a series of tiring "steps" along the mountain eventually to a river. Along the way you will get a chance to see some of the rare orchid flowers, a host of reptiles and experience "nature" 1st hand. The river crossing is probably the most memorable experience. Its a long long walk along a metal rope bridge around 40-50 feet above the river and you are literally balancing yourself on the single metal rope. if you are not careful there is a high probability that you might slip in from the gaps straight into the river. Its scary - yes - at the same time fun to do. Then starts a tiring walk upto the village and eventually to the double decker living root bridge. there is an option for a home stay up in the village as well. I'd highly recommend folks to visit this "one of its kind in the world" double decker living root bridge.

“The deeper you go in nature's arms the more thrilling it is”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

I really have no words to describe what an amazing place this is. The double decker living root bridge is one of the marvels in today's time. Trekking for about 3200 steps over a length of 3.5 km (One side, so that makes 7 km to&fro with 6400 steps). The on way scenic beauty is phenominal and will sweep your feet off the ground. The natural beauty of an unmatched level offering total happiness. If you are a good swimmer do not miss to swim in the pond which comes on the way that contains blue water. YES blue water, it appears as the place is so clean. If you have good stamina you will be able to finish the trek in 3 hours including your stay at the bridge of about 45-50 mins. but even if you cant the trek in less time it is still worth it. You should carry beers with you in-case you drink and after reaching the place you will feel heaven. An ultimate lifetime experience.
