NONGTHYMMAI 2

RIVER/STREAM: N/A (bridge is being grown between two rocks on bank of R. Simtung)
LENGTH: APPROX: 4 m
WIDTH AT CP: APPROX: 1.5 m
HEIGHT AT CP: APPROX: 2 m
GPS: N25.24914 E91.67968
ALTITUDE: 407 m
SR: N/A
NOTES: This is a brand-new attempt to create a living root bridge. It is only a few meters from Nongthymmai 1. The arrangement of the roots would seem to serve no practical purpose beyond generating tourism interest. The roots are very thin and therefore could be easily ruined. However, as tourism makes up a significant part of the economy of the area, there is a very strong incentive for the community to maintain and develop the structure.
NOTE: PLEASE GO TO ANALYTICS AND ANALYSIS (APRIL 2017 DRAFT) FOR METHODOLOGIES. LR PROJECT DESIGNATION DOES NOT REFLECT LOCAL NAME.
