Next day, again I woke up early to visit the nearby places of our homestay, i found a valley and clicked some photos.
Our driver came around 8:00 AM and we left our stay for the most awaited part of the trip. The trek to Double Decker root bridge. The local suggest us to take a guide with us who can show us some under rated places as well. After some chit chat we started our trek around 9 AM and reached double decker bridge at around 11:30 AM. We have crossed around 3500 nos stairs and some rocky path as well as many suspension bridges.
It was tiring, but the bath in front of the bridge in the cold stream was soooo good, all your tiredness gone within minutes.
After the refreshing bath, we have pumped up. As our guide suggest we were ready to explore the Rainbow falls.
It was 2.5 Km from Double decker root bridge. And the road is pretty tough.
We were exhausted, and took many stops till the falls. The muddy road was risky too.
But after another 2 hours we reached to the cliff of the rainbow falls. And trust me it was soooo awesome, the sound of this huge falls litterly feels your heart and mind, the water droplets from the falls makes you refresh.
The guide told us that if we wait till 4-5 PM we can see the rainbow as the position of the sun will be exact for that. But we don't have that much time as we had to reach to our starting point where our driver is waiting for us.
And it's long journey to reach there, and in dark it will be more difficult. So we clicked some photos and left.
The return journey was too hard, we had no food and we were so hungry and out of energy.
Our legs were not ready to move, we were so tired. It took almost 5 hours to reach to our car. We were totally exhausted this time, we took some food and ask our driver to move fast to the hotel in Shilong.
Tips: Don't go rainbow falls from double decker bridge in single day if you are not very fit.
You can stay in the homestay near the double decker bridge and explore rainbow falls next day.
Always carry water bottle. You can refill it from the stream, these are fresh and tasty.Also carry some dry food and energy bar.
We reached our hotel at 10 PM and slept.
