Standing at a whopping 53 metres in length, the living root bridge at Mawkyrnot in Rangthylliang is the longest of its kind in the entire world. Despite the fact that it is entirely made with the roots of two rubber trees ( ficus elastica trees) planted on opposite sides of a river, it is still rather sturdy and one does not need to worry about the safety of crossing this bridge.
There are a total of 5 living root bridges in the area. Still, the longest one that is located in the Mawkyrnot area is the most special amongst these bridges due to its amazing beauty and the cultural significance it holds to the people of the region. There are a total of 1500 steps which lead you down to this living root bridge, and although this may seem like a large number, it is not that arduous of a journey at all due to the fact that these steps have been built extremely well.
However, although tourists only started visiting this region in 2014, the current facilities for food and accommodation are quite decent. If one desperately needs any requirements when it comes to food itself, Miss Nohksiar Khongmawloh, another resident of the area who runs a local tea shop is always ready to deliver food packets to tourists during their hikes and treks. Her strength and diligence to be able to carry multiple food packets straight to the tourists and visitors on their trekking journeys have made her well renowned within the area.
Other than the trek to these bridges, tourists can also visit and view the breathtaking waterfalls and rivers of the area, all while appreciating the fascinating natural flora and fauna that this region offers.
