RIVER/STREAM: UNKNOWN
LENGTH: 19.3 m (includes wooden end of span)
WIDTH AT CP: .8 m
HEIGHT AT CP: 3.1 m
GPS: N25.24098 E91.66119
ALTITUDE: 278 m
SR: 6
NOTES: This location has two separate bridges (non-contiguous spans) that are formed from a single tree, hence designations (a) and (b). Mynteng 1 (a) is a damaged root bridge. However, the main roots forming its walkway are still thick and strong, and there are very clear signs that the local community is presently and actively engaged in its maintenance. It has recently become a part of the Nongriat tourism zone. Parts of the bridge are being regenerated using traditional methods. The bridge and the tree it was formed from are badly damaged by Latex extraction cutting, however the cutting seems to have been effectively outlawed as the cuts appear old.
NOTE: PLEASE GO TO ANALYTICS AND ANALYSIS (APRIL 2017 DRAFT) FOR METHODOLOGIES. LR PROJECT DESIGNATION DOES NOT REFLECT LOCAL NAME.
