    Commonly known as the living root bridges, these man-made structures involve the art of tree shaping. The local Khasi tribes have invented an indigenous method to use the roots of ancient rubber trees as bridges. The root bridges are more stable and stronger than wooden bridges which do not survive the heavy rains of this region.

    It takes around 15 years for a new root bridge to become strong enough to bear the weight of humans. However, with time, the bridge continues to grow and strengthen. Some of the bridges are believed to be hundreds of years old, although no one knows their exact age. These tangled webs of roots are almost eerie, almost like they belong in a world of fantasy.
