The photo is of suspension bridge which connects Kushma to Gyandi, ie two cliffs separated by Modi river situated in Parbat, Nepal. It is considered one of the tallest suspension bridge in Nepal with height of 135 meters. It is one of the longest bridge with length of 344 meters. It reduces a tough 1 hour walk to about 5 minutes.

    Namaste!
    Thanks for the photo. It looks to be a very useful bridge.
    But I have few comments. I think the bungee in Bhotekoshi is about 160 m high and it is from a bridge. So basically, it is higher than the bridge you mention.
    Second, this type of bridge is called suspended bridge. Suspension bridge is one with tower at each end.
    Hope it helps.

    Nice one Bhanu…I would love to bungee jump off that bridge… I hope they start it there, sooner than later… :)

  7. Longest and Tallest

    Interesting!!! Caption and description says different but as far I know it’s both tallest and suspension bridge because of its uniqueness that it lacks support as opposed to the bridge like Chandani-Dodhara.

    Found some interesting story in http://wikimapia.org/12742185/Katuwachaupari-Parbat

    Anyway, nice shot Bhanu!!! I wish to stand in between and feel the gentle breeze… ahhhhh!!!!

    Nice picture indeed… But I don’t understand this is about highest bridge or longest bridge…. If this is about longest bridge then i don’t agree. As Kiran has mentioned, longest suspension bridge of Nepal is Chandani-Dodhara bridge..

    A week ago, I saw a report about this bridge in a national newspaper quoting this as the longest suspension bridge. I guess Bhanu is going to drill down a bit to verify the truth.

    But interestingly, searching for [longest suspension bridge of nepal] in Google shows this post on 1st page, 2nd position.
    :)

    Cheers Bhanu!

    the bridge looks really terrific one.
    I guess the most horrifying moment would be standing in the middle of the bridge and somebody shaking the bridge from other side .. hehe :P

    Nice shot Bhanu dai.. and yes the bridge looks long enough as seen in the pic….

    344 meters!!! that’s a really long distance for a suspension bridge. It would be a lovely experience to peep down from the bridge.
    Thanks Bhanu for sharing such a capture.
