Perhaps the most unique feature in the interest of tourists is the Longlangba or Stone Bridge which is a ridge of stones that passes through the Rhododendron woods. The forest has small holes in the rocks that were carved into the stones so that spears could be placed in them. These were like warning signs to attackers that they would be killed and their head taken off. You can also see the footprints of Ediben and Jina, the adored love birds of the Ao tribe hailing from Mopungchuket Village popularly known as the Romeo & Juliet of the Aos. Below the stone bridge lies the huge ‘Tekulem Long’ or Worship Stones, where in the ancient days, people worshipped and gave sacrifices to the Stone God.
