    Effective load balancing has been a challenging task in Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANET) due to their dynamic and un-predictable behaviour and topology
    change. This paper presents a new approach based on multipath routing backbones for enhanced load balancing in MANETs. Nodes in MANETs greatly differ with each other in terms of communication and processing capabilities. In the proposed approach, multiple routing backbones are identified from source to destination using intermediate nodes that have better communication and processing capabilities to take part in the mobile routing backbones and efficiently participate in the routing process.
