Members of the Karbi community in India broke a Guinness World Record when they formed a line of 721 people walking on stilts.

The Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council organized the record attempt during the 50th Karbi Youth Festival in Assam and the 721 stilt-walkers donned traditional garb and formed a line stretching 1.24 miles.

The participants walked for 10 minutes to break the Guinness World Record for the longest moving line of people walking on stilts.

Stilt walking, also known as Kang Dong Dang, is a tradition with deep roots in the Kabri culture.
