huge fig trees whose aerial roots have been trained to cross seasonal rivers. they put a dead palm tree across the river and over years, trains the roots to grow across them.
the oldest root bridge is over 100 years old. sadly they are not maintained anymore and some of them are not safe to cross. I came to this part of India just to see the root bridges. the double decker root bridge was the highlight of the area. never seen anything like this anywhere
