Sohra to Rainbow Waterfall Via NongriatHow to reach?Start the day early to skip the hot and humid afternoons. The taxi will drop you from Sohra to Tyrna within an hour. Sohra is colder but once you start the hike from Tyrna down to Nongriat via Nongthymmai and Mynteng village taking the dreaded 3000 steps hike, the temperature will rise. Walk through the overwhelming wilderness, crossing some living root bridges and swinging suspension bridges. It's definitely one of the most picturesque hikes I've taken. There is also a cave beyond the bridge, close to the first living root you encounter, that must not be missed.Take a break at Nongriat and dip your tired feet in the pools near the double-decker living root bridge at Nongriat. The second half of your hike starts now. There are hardly any cemented steps ahead on the way but the trail is narrow and steep and has several more of these picturesque living root bridges too. What awaits at the rainbow falls is a sight worth all the efforts taken on this rather strenuous hike. You must spend as much time as you can there but must get back to Nongriat before it gets dark.
Blues pools of water in and around the Rainbow Falls are forever etched in my memory.
Being strenuous climb, it's less crowded.
