NOTES:This living root bridge spans the Amalayee river, which bisects the settlement of Nongbareh. The roots are strong and well-established, though damaged in places. The tree is considered by the locals to not be in good health. The structure is surrounded by houses, and the path it services is in constant use. Latex extraction appears to have occurred many years ago, but has been effectively banned. It is said to be a very ancient living root bridge.

NOTE: PLEASE GO TO ANALYTICS AND ANALYSIS (APRIL 2017 DRAFT) FOR METHODOLOGIES. LR PROJECT DESIGNATION DOES NOT REFLECT LOCAL NAMES
