The bridge design consisted of logs, which served as railing, and logs and stones to clamp on the edge of a precipice. Once these bridges were considered quite reliable: the load was not so great, and their condition is always someone cared. For the modern traveler crossing this straw bridge was a real test.

And used for this purpose a certain kind of plant – ficus elastica, whose roots grow in the right direction under the strict control of man. However, such construction requires considerable time. For example, the Living Root bridge, whose length is 16 meters, was built about 150 years ago in 10-15 years. This bridge, despite its rather extravagant view are actually very durable. It is able to withstand both people and animals, and most importantly, it stands up during floods, which in these places are not uncommon.
