The Living Roots Bridges of Meghalaya: A Bioengineering marvel- They live to tell the tale about how community effort goes a long way in bolstering goodwill in the community. Fashioned by hand, the farmers of the Jaintia and Khasi tribes built these to access their fields and orchards. The gnarled, tangled roots of the ‘Ficus Indica’ tree suspended over the river are perfect photo op’s and it won’t be long before you will be tempted to queue up for your turn on the bridge.
The sun retreats and gives way to dusk and It’s time to party and dance a jig to the tunes of the local Jazz, pop bands. The local talent abounds with their well-modulated voices honed by years of choir singing in praise of the lord.
As the day draws to a close it’s time to retire to the warm confines of your tents, your adrenaline pumped bodies ready to hit the bed and float away into dreamland.
