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.

  • World's only one double decker living root bridge..You can stay here in lodge,good food.Also rainbow falls situated here..
  • May be the only live bridge in the world ( or the only one in India) like this . Nice . Don't miss to see this those who visit chirapunjee area
  • 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 bit tough to return back through those 3000 more staircase, yet it is really adventrous yet beautiful place to visit passing through hanging bridges,as the name says double decker living root bridge,over crystal clear stream.. It took me one and half hour .
  • A very good trekking place.. it will test your stamina limits.. 6k steps approx 4km mountain trekking
