Living root bridges in the tropical forests of Meghalaya state, India

While we’re talking about bridges and India, there is one area that deserves international recognition. The Meghlaya district in India features a wide array of bridges- many of them over 200 years old. What’s unique about them are the fact that they are all made of vegetation- namely wood and vines. One of the places one has to see is the Double-Decker bridge, as seen in the picture above. To learn more about them, here are a few links that will lead you to the sites talking about this unique region.
