Root bridges are handmade from the aerial roots of rubber fig trees (Ficus elastica) by the Khasi and Jaintia peoples of the mountainous terrain along the southern part of the Shillong Plateau. They take around fifteen years to fully develop. While most of the living root bridges are single decked, this one here is special- with two decks.
