Double Decker Living Root Bridge, Cherrapunjee

Nature meets human ingenuity at Double Decker Living Root Bridge, where humans have manipulated ariel roots of fig trees to grow through trunks and attach themselves on the other end. Quite literally living, the bridge is self-maintaining and self-renewing, and can last hundreds of years as long as the trees it grows from remain healthy. The two-level bridge spans a clean stream flowing into a natural pool, which you can swim in. Prepare for a strenuous hike through thick jungle and steep, narrow steps to reach the site. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Cherrapunjee holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Double Decker Living Root Bridge and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Must visit place. As name says, it has two Root bridges over a clear stream. The place also has a small waterfalls. Allowed to take bath in the stream. There is a clean changing room. Better to start early. It takes around 2 hours to reach the place. If you hire a guide, he will point to the varieties of birds, butterflies , spices and plants. Better to rent the bamboo stick at the start of the trek. It helps a lot on the trek back. Maggi at the end of the trip was really yummy
  • A very good trekking place.. it will test your stamina limits.. 6k steps approx 4km mountain trekking
  • A really breath taking place to visit. It is advised to start the trip as early as possible, it takes around 2 hours to reach to the ground by stairs and takes even more time to climb up the stairs. Do carry food and water, as the people have only maggi down there.
