Khonglah 4

11 Khonglah 4
A view from the side of Khonglah 4.

Notes: Khonglah 4 is an unusual living root bridge that exists on the severe slopes between Khonglah Village, West Jaintia Hills, and the Amdep River. The access paths to it were faint and very steep. While the tree the bridge is formed from has clearly been heavily manipulated, most of the roots seem to have been guided at random. Only a small part of the tree’s areal roots have been employed to create a living root bridge. I wasn’t able to ascertain why this had been done.

NOTE: THIS STRUCTURE WAS NOT VISITED AS PART OF A DATA COLLECTING EXPEDITION, AND SO HAS NOT BEEN MEASURED. PLEASE GO TO ANALYTICS AND ANALYSIS (APRIL 2017 DRAFT) FOR METHODOLOGIES. LR PROJECT DESIGNATION DOES NOT REFLECT LOCAL NAME
