DAY 5

  • Today you will leave Shillong to explore the root bridges in Cheerapunjee. After breakfast you will trek to Single Decker Living Root Bridge—3-4 hours from the resort.

The steps are relatively steeper in two short stretches. Half the distance is covered by steps going downhill. Then there is a jungle path going along the sides of the hill leading to the Living Root Bridge with a few steps after short stretches of sloping footpath. Moss thrives on these sandstone steps during the monsoon and makes them slippery.

It is dubbed the cleanest village in India by Discover India Magazine. The primary village school till class V boasts of its no dropout record and the village has achieved 90% literacy.

Farming of betel nut & leaves, broomsticks, and pepper along with bee rearing are the primary economic activities of this village, and with the village headman himself taking the responsibility of making visitors comfortable, a day in this village gives an insight into the life of the Khasis, the influence of the Church, and its metamorphosis.
