Cherrapunji is probably the wettest city, which only can be found on the ground. It bridges simply do not need to build as they grow themselves. Yes, it is growing, you are not heard. Of course, bridges do not grow up in the city and in hidden valleys where rain runs almost every day. For example, take the lowlands and the mountains Janta Hasi, is growing ficus rubber. Once the soldiers Khasis drew attention to the fact that with the help of the tree, it is easy to cross the river in the area. And so, now, if you want to create a crossing, they just grow bridges.

They are thrown across the river at the spot where it is needed, and for them, to these twigs, they go, young roots of ficus rubber. Once the roots reach the other side, they are strengthened in the earth. To bridge was fully fit, it must be at least 15 years.
