Kushma - Gyadi suspension bridge

Seeing is believing !!!

 

Villagers in Parbat district (Nepal) couldn't believe when they first heard about this bridge that would connect district headquarter to rest of its VDCs through 344 meters long Kusma-Gyadi suspension bridge above 135 meters.

 

After all, seeing is believing. Everyone benefited from this bridge specially the local commuters. Hours of walk is now reduced to few minutes.

 

Incidentally, it is also the second longest suspension bridge of Nepal.
