For people who do not wish to take the entire trek can enjoy the single deck bridge that is half the way down. Upon arrival at Double decker, you will confront a beautiful creation of mankind with help of mother nature. The crystal clear water flowing beneath the bridge is another delight! Dip your legs in water and a fish spa is there on the house :). Ever seen those aquarium based fish spa counters in a nearby mall? Here the nature will provide you the same in much better surroundings and that also without any charges…can’t get better!.
