This ecosystem is home to over 100 mammals, 300 birds and a thousand other life forms. A forest so rich in diversity that every inch is teeming with life that you can come across at any moment – while crossing streams on rickety foot bridges , jumping over large tree trunks which block the road or while ascending/descending the gentle climbs that dot the path.

The trek from Cherrapunjee to the living root bridges is not for the faint hearted as it requires lot of stamina and grit to trek down to these natural wonders of the nature. Meghalaya's double-decker and single-decker root bridges are unique in the world and are a sight to behold. The bridges are tangles of massive thick roots, which have been intermingled to form a bridge that can hold several people at a time. Khasi people have been trained to grow these bridges across the raised banks of streams to form a solid bridge, made from roots. 

HolidayIQ Traveller Sunil Chaurasia shares, “The root bridge is itself a marvel of Bioengineering, one will be stunned how creative the nature is. These bridges aren't made- they're grown. It is a form of tree shaping, which creates these suspension bridges. The root bridges are over a hundred feet long, and strong enough to support the weight of 40 persons at a time. The lifetime of these bridges are said to be around 500 years, really a marvel. Adding to this there is a water body just below it, which has plenty of water during monsoon seasons. This place is a trekkers and natural admirers paradise.”

4. Helicopter Rides In Sikkim

Why go trekking all the way to Gangtok along the winding uphill road when you can take a helicopter ride instead of the arduous, backbreaking journey. The ride from Bagdogra to Sikkim in a helicopter is far easier and more comfortable. But, do not be under the impression that there’s a lack of excitement in this adventure. Seeing the beauty of the scenic region from the top is as exciting as it can get, as you feel the sensation of flying like a bird, and devour the scenes while drifting over mountains and valleys, rivers and tea estates.

HolidayIQ Traveller Raja shares, “A helicopter ride above gangtok by tourism department. For this you have to book at tourist center at MG road.”
