Someplaces you really need to go inorder to believe them!
One such place is the Living root bridges of Meghalaya - Nongriat to be more precise. Being someone who loves nature , I had seen the pictures of living bridge just a year ago and made my mind I really need to go there(and also 100+ such places) So it was just one of my small dreams to go and experience it soon - I never realised I might be planning for the trip so soon and that too with the most unexpected people - my family! While it's just as normal to travel with your family, its almost a different thing when you're planning a trek with them.
So then started our journey of a thousand miles(3000 steps to be more precise). While the trek is a medium range trek with well constructed steps, I would advise to go only if you're really very keen and in proper shape. I don't mean to scare anyone, as you don't need special skills for this trek, just a habit of regular walking and good health. We completed this trek in a day due to shortage of time since we just devoted one day for Nongriat - but I would suggest to atleast use 2 days or if you really want to be lost - use as much time as you have because there's no such time as enough.
We began the trek around 12 when we reached the base vilage, Tyrna which is around 1 and half km from Cherrapunjee or Sohra(as the local people love to call it). The driver suggested we take a guide - but you don't really need one because the steps are enough. However if you have a lot of luggage or are not much sure about the way you can hire one at Rs 600. You can also buy a stick from the locals, which will help you while walking as some areas do not have proper support walls.
