KHASI DIARIES - . . Continued from the previous post . . We spent some time at the living root bridges, seeing the details of the support system provided by bamboo to those bridges. We also had the experience of a living root swing. Well, I needed a lot of encouragement to take that...😁😁 (All credit goes to @_travel_to_villages__meghalaya) . . There are a lot of amazing factors like the living root bridges, living root platforms, living root swings, living root ladders too. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #meghalayatourism #khasidiaries #wanderlust #womenwhoexplore #exploremore #onthemove #_soi #travelwriter #travelphotography #incredibleindia #responsibletourism #talesofbindu #impacttourism #livingrootsarchitecture #shillongdiaries #heritageofindia #khasitribe #tribesofindia #shuttersofindia #pynursla #indianhomestays

Had to share this. My dad always tells me to keep my khasi identity. So he also tells me to wear the jain kyrshah not only at home but also when I go for grocery shopping in barabazar. Though it's disturbing at time but I'm a khasi woman and inwardly I will always be khasi but it's also important to show that I'm a strong khasi woman and how important my tribal dressing is. Some may say that they're khasi but how can they prove they're khasi, it's mainly by their tribal dress and language. So my tribal dressing is an important part of my khasi identity and life, so people can know I'm a proud khasi woman. #tiktok #tiktokindia #northeastindia #khasi #khasitribe @tiktok @tiktokindia #shillonggirls @shillongstreetstyle @thevoiceofnortheastindia

Living root bridges Where the world is cutting trees in the name of development, this small village of meghalaya inhibited by khasi tribe is growing trees in a manner to develope bridges to sustain life. And this is what we need to do when it comes to developement of the so called smart cities. No country can progress well without trees . #tribal #khasitribe #khasihills #khasipeople #meghalaya #northeastindia #climatechange #climatechangeisreal #landescapearchitecture #architecture #greenpractices #greenarchitecture #photographersofindia #travelphotography #travelwithme #travelblogging #森森旅遊sonsontravel #travelholic #boho #vagary #nemophilist #nemophilla
