Jingmaham Living Root Bridge

Living Root bridges are known to come into existence in the West Jaintia Hills locale and East Khasi Hills region. Living root extensions are a type of tree forming normal in the southern piece of the Northeast Indian state of Meghalaya. They are handmade aerial roots from the living banyan fig trees. In the East Khasi Hills, living root connects adjacent Cherrapunji are known not known to exist around the towns of Nongthymmai, Nongriat, Tynrong, Mynteng, and around Laitkynsew. The nearby Khasi individuals don't know when or how the convention of living root scaffolds began. The most punctual composed record of Cherrapunji's living root extensions is by Lieutenant H Yule, who communicated awe about them in the 1844 Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal. At more than 50 meters long, the longest known sample of a living root bridge is close to the little Khasi town of Pynursla. It can be reached from both of the towns of Mawkyrnot or Rangthylliang.

Next place for the day was the root bridge in Meghalaya called Riwai living root bridge. These bridges are really old and creations of the locals. Standing on the bridge is not allowed but you can click pictures. I was having a nice time as this was a different experience. We had to leave from there in 20 minutes as we had one more place to visit on the same day. Just after a 10-minute drive from the root bridge, we reached Mawlynnong which is Asia's cleanest village. We enjoyed a delicious and homely local meal there and started back for Shillong.Covering all these places in one day made me tired, so I drank some tea and went to sleep immediately after reaching my hotel.
