Double Decker Living Root Bridge, Cherrapunjee

Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web
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.

  • “Organic engineering at its best!” Tucked away in the little village, the Living Roots Bridge is not something one's senses can easily fathom. It is a bridge that's ALIVE! Its perhaps stronger and steadier than concrete. There is every reason one should see this bridge if they are in Mawlynnong. Visited November 2015
