Bamboo bridge near Mawlynnong in the East Khasi Hills, in Meghalaya (India)

When rivers are too wide to grow living root bridges across them, the Khasi people build foot bridges with bamboo and rattan (they use no nylon rope or metal wire, it is 100% organic).

This bamboo bridge has a span of more than 20 meters (60 feet) and passes 10 meters (30 feet) above a river. They need to rebuild the bridge every few years because it gets rotten.
