These amazing living root bridges are thought to be over 500 years old. While there are dozens of such root bridges scattered throughout the valleys between the villages of Mawsynram and Dawki, some of these are conveniently accessible and have tourist amenities nearby. 

A local guide is required to view the bridges in more isolated places. One must take a walk on the unique Double Decker Living Root Bridge (65 km from Shillong). The height of this 3 km long growing root bridge is 2400 feet and crossing it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience
