Nongriat village is a harmonious and sustained gathering of villagers, tourists and nature. You have to be respectful of their customs and traditions as they have worked really hard toward maintaining them. It is completely cut off from what we address as the normal world and you can't help but wonder what they have going for themselves is damn near perfect. There are basic connectivity issues like kids going to school and resources need to be carried on foot, but it comes with its pleasures as well.
Trek to these architectural wonders of human accomplishment deep in the jungles tucked away from civilization and resources. A tradition almost centuries-old, where the elders of the communities along with the growing members build their bridges with the help of nothing but roots of trees to be able to cross over water bodies. You might want to address at this point that this is a place that receives the maximum rainfall on our planet as we know it so there was no other way to cross these high-intensity rivers. You can only stand there in awe of what these people have accomplished with literally no resources or scientific background. Also, because you have a water body right under might as well take a dive.
Rainbow waterfall is tough one to crack, especially if you haven't stretched that body of yours in a while. We recommend taking enough rest as this trek takes 2 hours after reaching Double Decker Root Bridge and the man-made steps end after a count o 500. Few places can be quite narrow so it's advisable to have good trekking shoes. But once you get to the place, firstly there will be little to no crowd as it's a task to get here, it's a scene right out of movies that are used to portray heaven, a long waterfall with a huge rainbow in the middle of a perfect landscape. Leaving the existence of heavens behind we can surely say if there was something of that sort, it would definitely be a beauty like this.
