Living Root Bridge - Mawylnnong - Meghalaya - India

No - this is not a set or a 3D rendition of a scene from Avatar. This is for real. This is a living root bridge. In parts of Meghalaya (this is where I come from) people have 'trained' roots of trees to grow in a certain manner and hence forming a natural bridge across a brook. It is unbelievable and to see it in person is simply amazing ! Im glad I had the opportunity to see it - It was pretty close to home anyways :)
