What to eat and where to sleep ?
There are very few places of accomodation in Nongriat. There is only a single guesthouse and few private homestays. We went there in summer which is considered and off season and yet the guesthouse was full. We then stayed at Byron’s homestay who just had a room saved for us. During the winters it is difficult to find accommodations without pre-booking. For the dinner, they served a veg buffet and it was delicious. They also keep noodles if you are hungry and need to grab a quick bite before the dinner.
The secrets of Nongriat -
Nongriat is more than just the double-decker bridge. An extra hour hike on any direction will treat you to all kinds of stunning views. The Rainbow falls is a gem and the root bridges are an engineering marvel. It is also a paradise for an entomologist as it shelters more than a thousand different species of colourful insects. There are secret pools and lagoons where you can take a swim anytime and it is full of folklores that are better than your bedtime stories. No matter what direction you walk, or which way you look, Nongriat is a treat.
