We visited root bridge in January. Previously I had visited this place in May. Weather is better and more beautiful in May due to rains. Entire region was green and absolutely stunning in May. It was magical due to rains and all the flat and hilly terrains covered with lush green carpet of natural grass and shrubs. Contradictory to the... More

The Living Root bridges prove that the most beautiful things are hidden by nature, and to perceive or discover these one needs to go that extra mile; to be worthy of the beauty that lights up wonder and fuels imagination in our life. Its a trek down a well carved out path. Trekking shoes are a must, as the steps... More

This is an interesting place. Roots of rubber tree and wound many many years ago and now is a bridge across a small rivlet that flows below. Place is tourist friendly and commercialized. Need to trek down for about 10 mins to reach the place. Full of tourist crowd, who have also littered the place. Good to visit.

This bridge is hard to get to, but worth it. The roots and branches stretch right across the river, and villages have placed stepping stones on it.

This single Decker living root bridge is an easier option compared to the more famous double decker one. Located near Mawlinnong village, takes about 10 minutes from the car park. May not be suited for old people, due to the no of steps. Place was packed with tourists when we reached. Pine apple pieces sold by the local boys is... More

Long trek down stone steps leads to a more uneven path of stones. Worth the climb up and down to walk the bridge that stands strong on its roots.

It was my first experience to see a bridge created by nature. It is a small root bridge with a lake below. Reaching the bridge is quite a walk though. May be difficult with small children. Nice for photography.

This is located in Mawlynnong and it needs trekking to reach the living root bridge. Nice place to click snaps. Living root bridge is a must visit attraction.
