Hanging Bridge Of Ghasa, Nepal
Ghasa’s hanging bridge can often get crowded. It isn’t always people causing the blockage, however, with this an important crossing for the region’s cattle. Located high in the Himalayan foothills, the bridge is strung over a dramatic river valley, an often-used route for those herding animals to the local markets.
Before this, the narrow roads, tracks and trails would tend to become clogged. The bridge has eased congestion, but the animals apart, few relish making the crossing.
Located not far from Ghasa — a small town in Nepal — the hanging bridge does little to inspire confidence, suspended between the cliffs, sagging in the middle, with the white water rushing by below. The chances are that you’ll meet the cattle, heading for market, halfway across. Take our advice on this one: look for an alternative route and leave the bridge for the animals.
