The Great Root Bridges – Meghalaya, India

Tree-Root-Bridge3-740x494

Cherrapunji, Meghalaya, India. In north-east of the country there are lush rainforests, considered to have the richest biodiversity in Asia. Various unique plants grow here, like Ficus Elastica, enabling the locals to create living bridges from their roots!

The Tree Root Bridges are the favorite tourist attraction in Cherrapunji and Nongriat village. Apparently, the technique is indispensable: the region is the wettest place on Earth and wooden bridges would simply rot. Although it can take up from 10 to 15 years to make a living bridge, the tradition exists for over 500 years.
