about Living Root Bridge

The Double Decker Living Root Bridge in Sohra is one of its most admired wonders. Snuggled in the dense green forests of Meghalaya, the iconic Double Decker Living Root Bridge remains blessed with rain for a major part of the year. It is one of the most stunning partly man-made structures of Meghalaya, created partly by the Khasi tribe .
Double-decker bridge , means the bridge has 2 decks or layers, which are created due to the entanglement of the roots. The upper bridge is 20 meters long and is difficult to reach if one is not physically fit enough to climb to the top.
The bridge starts at the village of Tyrna and crosses the Umshiang river during its journey. Getting to the actual bridge is a bit of a trek & hiking down to the bridge is a whopping 3500 steps each way to the bridge and back from the base village of Tyrna, which is 20 kilometers away from Sohra City.
On the way to the actual bridge, one finds several other smaller bridges which are not totally naturally held up & are made structurally sound using metal wire, since the tree roots used for these bridges are not as strong as some of the other trees.
Please don’t miss this spot if you are visiting Chherrapunji for first time.
