However, we enjoyed another facet of this place. Just after Dwaki, the river splits in to two branches. Both flow into Bangladesh but the left branch is interesting, in that, there is a sandbar after the lake on this branch whose leading edge is the boundary between India and Bangladesh. We saw many tourist on the sand bar and were surprised that they were all not Indian but Bangladeshi citizens.

See the bridge, go across it, go to the stream flowing under it, photograph it, enjoy the setting, there is so much one can do. Double Decker living root bridge at Nongriat village which is about three KM of tough trek from Tyrna village (off Cherapunji) is not every body’s cup of tea but visiting Rivai Single Root Bridge is possible for every one, except old and infirm (by that standard, by god's grace, my 80 yr old mom does not qualify to be old). My sincere request to visitors to Meghalaya is, at least visit Single Living root bridge.
