Double Decker Living Root Bridge-The Man-made marvel of Nature

#Sight Seeing in Cherrapunji

The Living Root Bridges of Meghalaya, are nothing short of a beautiful fusion of man-made and natural pinnacle of construction. Originally created by the Khasi tribe, the roots or the "bridges" grow from the ancient rubber trees, which are found only in the North-East India. According to locals, some of these bridges are made from roots, which are well over 500 years old.

The major tourist attraction among these bridges is the Double Decker Living Root Bridges of Cherrapunji. The path to reach this particular Living Root Bridge consists of nearly 3000 stair-steps. And since the Bridges are not built, but grown naturally, the beauty of the Bridge is astounding. These indigenous architectural marvels provide a practically free alternative to wooden bridges, which get spoiled in an area receiving as much rain as Cherrapunji.

"This is single level Living Root Bridge and is accessible through a long flight of steps. This is comparatively easy to access than the other double level Living Root Bridge. They say it takes around 150 years to make something like this. It is awesome and marvel at their native wisdom. Hope these knowledges are preserved. "

"A lovely walk for 1 hr 15 mins. Its a very steep descent to start with and a steep ascent on the return. Not recommended for the aged and those who are not accustomed to climbing forts or walking great distances. There are concrete steps right from the start all the way to the end."
