Although a lot of the advertisers make it look like these bridges are in Shillong/Cherrapunjee to bring you to this side of Meghalaya, the bridges themselves are actually in a tiny little village of Nongriat in the East Khasi Hills.
You can’t get a taxi straight to this village as it’s deep down in the jungle of the hills. So, you need to reach a place called Tyrna Village which is where the hike begins.
This is easily accessed from Cherrapunjee (Sohra) itself and is around a 20-30 minute drive away from there. If you’re staying in Cherrapunjee, you can easily book a taxi for around 400 rupees (£5) per private charter one way.
Did you know that Meghalaya is bordered with Bangladesh? That’s it in the distance! Ask your driver to stop for a photo stop.
But, if you’re not staying down in Nongriat, then have a taxi wait for you. When it gets dark (and this trek will take you all day) there are public NO taxis here to take you back to Cherrapunjee.
Public taxis do go near it from Cherrapunjee, but they’re not frequent and won’t drop you directly in Tyrna village. You will be dropped a fair few kilometres away at a turning point.
To get here, is an epic hike which will lead you to 3000 steps… each way! It’s no joke.
