MUST VISIT IN EAST, DOUBLE DECKER ROOT BRIDGE

Tripoto
16th Jun 2019
Day 1

We went on bikes from shillong at 8 am . And went on the cherrapunjee road . The weather was really mesmerising . Visibility was hardly 15mtrs , completely foggy but thats the best part of @meghalaya. Its a caution to take raincoat along with you if you are going on bikes . But the feel of weather in this month is really awesome as compared to the extreme hot conditions all over India. We reached at 1045 in Cherrapunjee , take a right turn from there as you might get confused coz google maps show a different route, but you can ask from taxi drivers they will tell you the way. Then the road was good in starting but later on it became one way and was bit rough. But serenic beauty was awesome. We parked our bikes their ,charges are 20 rs each. Then we started walking down the stairs. First you will reach Long root bridge and charges are 30 rs per person . It is also nice to visit and click pics. Then we started for double decker root bridge. It took 2+ hrs to reach as we were clicking pics and all. One thing that helped us for the trip was fitness . I will suggest that you should stay there for night and  come back next day. Their are home stays down there for  500rs per person. You will get  maggi for 30rs , dal chawal for 100rs and normal items there.  As they say ""come close to nature and feel the wilderness "" , it is true for this place. We enjoyed in the water , took bath had fun . Then we started our back journey by 3 pm . We didn't stop in between as the condition for climbing hills is if you need some rest then just keep standing for some time but Don't sit as you will feel very lazy to start walking again.  So in 1 hr 10 minutes we completed our trek , totally exhausted. The weather was a bit rainy so do carry raincoat or umbrella for sure.
