The root bridges are man made some 20-25 years ago but with that intervention they grow naturally over time to form the root bridges. There are many root-bridges in Meghalaya and that is part of their culture to develop root bridges to cross water bodies....More

The single root bridge is really a nature's wonder. The way the roots have entwined to form a bridge for people to cross over is amazing. People are not allowed to stay on the bridge for long because it cannot hold a weight for long....More

It will take you 10-15 minutes to reach there. It is a small bridge made out of living roots. It takes years to make the bridge. However, there isn't much to do there apart from being in awe of such things in existence.

It was raining very heavily. Couldn't enjoy much. After seeing cherrapunji single root bridge, I didn't find it very attractive. Due to heavy rain fall we wanted to be back in our vehicle.
