In the Indian city of Cherrapunji, Meghalaya sits these astonishing root trees that the War-Khasis tribe has been cultivating for centuries. These literal bridges are made from the Ficus Elastica rubber tree, which is able to grow roots above ground. Each bridge takes from 10-15 years to grow and some are over 500 years old.
