MEHGALAYA is a tribal kingdom in Assam.
It is jammed between Bangladesh and Bhutan.
It is near SHILLONG, the capital.
See the photos of the area under Shillong on the internet - very beautiful.
Cheerapunji is a town near by that gets the highest rainfall in the world!

The most successful execution / construction of living Bridges with a life span of many centuries in one of the most remote parts of the World.

Man making nature work for him.

I couldn't comprehend what they meant by a living bridge until I watched this.

Quite a unique concept for folks who have limited technical education, but seemingly have sufficient common sense to survive.

No civil engineering is involved at all.
