It is a living root bridge made naturally by Tree roots. It's surprising to see nature's wonder to build this two storey bridge. Great views and waterfall. Not for people with low stamina and leg problems. It requires more than 2500 stairs.

Double decker root bridge is in nongriat ....almost 3000 steep steps which can be very tiring .... Travel advice : a night stay in Nongriait is advisable to cover root bridge & rainbow falls. Many homestays are available there
