Myndring is a small Khasi village on a ridge downhill from Pynursla.
While not very far from the town as the crow flies, it is still very
remote, being only accessible on foot via a steep stairway. 

I was told in Myndring that I was the first tourist to visit
within living memory, so the living root bridges pictured below had
probably not been seen by an outsider before.

Bridge 2:

I was told that sign said, if effect, that the village council had
forbade local villagers from taking hacks at the bridge with machetes.

Once again, you can see here that the roots on the bridge look to be
well over two feet thick, making it yet another very ancient structure
