Interesting!!! – It takes around 15 years for a new root bridge to become strong enough to bear the weight of people crossing it !! DAWKI is the only place where there is a road route connecting to Bangladesh !! A small market area in Dawki has been set up which allows people at both borders to share business connections. After descending some 2000+ steps for the Double Decker Root Bridge, If you’re not too exhausted and have the time, continue to walk around 20-30 minutes past the Double Decker root bridge. The natural swimming pools near this root bridge are a highlight.
