The Root Bridges of Cherrapunji
Long ago, the War-Khasis people of Meghalaya in northeastern India began forming the roots of the rubber tree into bridges that would give them passage over the river. The root bridges are extraordinarily strong and because they are alive and still growing, the bridges actually gain strength over time—and some of the ancient root bridges used daily by the people of the villages around Cherrapunji may be well over 500 years old.
