Separating the Assam valley from the neighbouring state of Bangladesh, Meghalaya—also known as the abode of clouds—is worth visiting for several reasons. This beautiful mountain state with its pine vegetation and snow clad peaks is home to some of the most fascinating waterfalls, mysterious caves, unusual flora and fauna, and a unique tribal culture. It also boasts of having two of the wettest places on earth within its territorial boundaries—Cherrapunji and Mawsynram.

DAY 3: Double Decker Root Bridge
Double Decker Route Bridge Trek

After breakfast, trek to the Living Root Bridge. The trek normally takes two hours. The route is replete with small village where one can relax and explore rural life. One of the major attractions here are the living roots bridges. A slightly tough trek leads you to these bridges, which are naturally made from roots of trees braided together. They are set to grow across the river, thus making life easier for locals. There are a number of these root bridges that travellers can trek to and each of them looks like something out of a fantasy novel. However, there is another Living root Bridge, which has "Two Tiers".This amazing bridge is a two-tier living Root Bridge (made of the roots of a living tree), connecting a chasm with a pool of jade water below. The two tiers measure 59ft and 83 ft in length respectively. The trek to this double decker is tough but worth the pains. Overnight at cottage (Cherra cafe)
