The Nongriat village is home to the much-anticipated 200-year-old, Double Decker Root Bridge. On reaching this natural bridge, you are bound to be awestruck by its sheer beauty and size. It was built patiently by the villagers over generations by guiding the roots across the river with support. It is named Double Decker because it comprises of 2 bridges stacked one over the other and can hold up to 50 people at once!

Day 6 – Exploring the Rainbow Falls and travel to Wahkhen Village

After breakfast, we set off from Nongriat Village climbing for 1.5 hours to reach the Rainbow Falls. This trek takes immense grit and endurance as the path is made up of broken, uneven rocks and very dense forest. You will only have the sound of water and of insects as a source of comfort as you push yourself to trek towards the waterfall. When you catch the first glimpse of torrents of water falling at momentous speed and pounding a gigantic rock below, the tiresome trek will feel worth it. You know why? Because this fall is a true gift from nature – the sun’s rays hit the rock to reflect a miraculous rainbow on both sides and you will think your eyes are deceiving you!

We’ll continue our journey to Wahkhen village, where we’ll have our lunch and then, go for an evening walk around the village and interact with the villagers and hear the “Jingrwai iaw bei” which is a traditional practice of the villagers of having their name called in the form of tunes or a song.

We’ll set out for the next destination, and on the way, we’ll make a quick stop at Borhill waterfall! This quaint little village located on the India-Bangladesh border is home to the ravishing Umngot River. Being one of the cleanest rivers in India, when looked at from a distance the emerald waters fo the river looks transparent allowing you to see the river bed several feet below the surface. We’ve all seen pictures of a boat floating on transparent water on social media, now it’s time to see it for yourself! The other major attraction here apart from the extreme natural beauty and peace is the Dawki Bridge which is a suspension bridge over the Umngot River and that offers some spectacular panoramic views.

We’re gonna camp by the river – sounds fun, right?

This is the last leg of our journey! After breakfast, we’ll set out and stop at the Krangsuri waterfall. Once you reach the waterfall, you have a viewpoint for amazing Instagramable photos!
