We started the day by driving to Cherrapunjee alternatively known as Sohra from where we started the famous Trek to the Double Decker Living Roots Bridge.
A living root bridge is formed by guiding roots of the Ficus elastica tree across a river, and allowing the roots to grow over time.
The trek involves descending 3000 steps and on the way you also come across a smaller living root bridge. This trek also leads to the rainbow falls which is further ahead of double decker bridge.
We reached the starting point of the trek at around 11 which was a two hour drive from Shillong.
It was another scenic drive with a stop from where you see the border of Bangladesh.
During the trek we got lost!, took several stops to dip in the tempting natural pools and finally reached Rainbow falls after 4-5 hours.
We went on to stay the night at a home-stay in the nongriat village itself just opposite the Double Decker bridge.
