Meghalaya, located in northeast India, is one of the most water-soaked places in the world, with heavy rains buffeting it all year round. It’s a beautiful place, but it's sadly often affected by heavy flooding. To cope with the extreme climate, the locals had come up with an ancient solution--bridges made out of the woven roots of fig trees. This is a feat that no man can accomplish in a single lifetime: a single bridge can take up to 500 years to fully develop, and it’s imperative that the youth maintain these architectural wonders so they will remain fully usable. Find out more about it below.
