Double Decker Living Root Bridge, Sohra

#1 of 80 in Things to do in East Khasi Hills District
Must see · Bridge · Tourist Spot
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. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Sohra holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Double Decker Living Root Bridge and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • A lovely experience to trek down to this bridge. It was like a check list achieved in one's life.. Climbing 7000 stairs was not easy through hills and jungle but yes it was fun. All pains got vanished seeing the beautiful natural creation of almighty..
  • The trek consists of 5 to 6 hours with average fitness. The trek has 7200 stairs mostly in 45 degree elevation. So one can feel breathlessness at the time of walking. Still you won't die doing the trek. So go for it. The bridge you will see will be a lifetime watch. So dont miss it.
