A very good place and amazing structure. Locals must have worked really hard over the years to get this into the kind of shape it is now.

The Living root bridges are native to Meghalaya and surrounding states. The natives know how to give direction to pliable young external roots of certain trees to build bridges over streams and rivers. It's a forgotten art in modern age now but old examples like...More
