Beauty and Only Beauty that lures me to stay except the hard hitting fact of a climb down and up 3000+ steps. One must go there if visit cherapunji.

This is being naturally created by roots of many nearby trees. When one walk through this and see the water flowing below that, makes it really adventurous.

I initially only wanted to visit Long Root Bridge but people kept on telling me to visit this place. And glad I did. There are few homestays that are here and it is really advisable to stay for atleast a day.

Yes you need to go down some 3500 steps and climb up, but not only the destination but the journey itself is worth it. Better you keep entire day reserved for this as it is tiring as well as time consuming. Not advisible for elderly...More

How much time does it take to visit the Double decker bridge. I believe it's quite a trek. Some even say we need to dedicate an entire day. How true is this? Can I visit the double decker bridge and also visit two more places on the same day?

Hello, I am almost travelling first time this far, we are two frnds. I reach guwahati airport by 11am on 25th may and I our return flight is on 28th may @12pm. between this time I want visit best places of guwahati/Shillong/cheerapunji. my preferences are waterfalls, wildlife, amusement. As per the time problem, double decker bridge is not a must. And we are in budget type.(don't think of air travel.) please suggest us a better plan, places.(we can afford the helicopter ride 1 way only for time saving). prefer share travels to low the budget but not at the cost of too much trouble. thank you

Hi, I am planning a trip to shillong, cherrapunjee and mawlynnong in Mid of May. I am a senior citizen, so from the reviews of Double decker root bridge its quite evident that it will be not convenient for me for 3400 steps. But is there any single root bridge? Please let me know the location and let me know if it is accessible for seniorcitizens as I really want to visit one. Thanks, Apurba S
