The picture has been contributed by Dr Bernard Trench Lyngdoh, Senior Consultant Neurosurgeon, Neuro and Spinal Clinic, “Heritage,” Jylli Shop, Nongthymmai, Shillong, Meghalaya, and refers to areas in the state where the bridges are alive!

Unique to Meghalaya, these living root bridges are found at many locations spreading around Cherrapunjee, Mawsynram, Mawlynong and Dawki. The pliable roots of the Indian rubber tree (Ficus elastica) are woven across over betel nut tree trunks placed across rivers and streams. A bridge may take up to 15 years to make and will live for hundreds of years as long as the parent tree is alive and healthy. With time, the roots get thicker and stronger.

The living bridges represent an amazing wonder created by the Khasi war tribals of Meghalaya.
