It was an experience of a lifetime, going through the verdant hills, with waterfalls and streams in the distance all around us. the living root bridge is over a river and overlooks a waterfall, and was absolutely quiet. A must visit for a nature lover.

There is hardly a day when it doesn't rain in Cherrapunji. You can trek taking due precautions. Rainbow is further 1 hour trek from Double root, only start if you feel physically up for it..
