Meghalaya is one of the world’s wettest regions, receiving some of the highest rainfall ever recorded. One of the challenges that rears-up every year is that of the raging rivers. Crossing these rivers becomes a near impossibility due to the intense rains and wild torrents. However, the people of Meghalaya have been practicing a centuries-old tradition of coaxing tree branches and roots to form natural bridges!

Watch the video to know how these living bridges are constructed and how they can survive any deluge!
