In the depths of northeastern India, in one of the wettest places on earth, bridges aren't built - they're grown. The living root bridges of Cherrapungee from the roots of the Ficus elastica tree.

This tree produces a series of secondary roots from higher up its trunk and can comfortably perch atop huge boulders along the riverbanks, or even in the middle of the rivers themselves. Via: Atlasobscura.com
