Camping near the living root bridges of Meghalaya

14th April 2017 was special. This was the day when 52 people camped in Nongriat village, Meghalaya – close enough for everyone to hear the living roots breathe at night. This was the first time ever that a group camped for two nights in a village, only accessible by foot where one walks down 3.5 km or 3600 steps to reach it.
