The root bridge was ok type as we had experienced double decker living root bridge. The passage near the bridge is quite narrow and is slippy during rains. Also, the river side offers risky attraction.

Unlike the double decker root bridge, which takes a lot of effort to reach, this one in Mawlynnong is easily accessible and more crowded. Would suggest to reach early when there are less people around to actually feel the place. Beautiful in all forms. Also,...More

A must visit, its amazing to see how roots makes a natural bridge. It takes a small walk from village to the bridge but its totally worth it.

Unbelievable to see how roots of a big tree can actually form a bridge. Spectacular. Nice clear chill water flows beneath it. One has walk down 500 mts to reach the actual bridge. Not very difficult to do. Easy parking and refreshments on the way
