Hanging Bridge of Ghasa, Nepal Before that, herds of animals were constantly accumulated in and around the village, occupying the narrow mountain road almost completely. Today, hundreds of shepherds and animals move freely across the bridge and get access to picturesque pastures.

The narrow bridge is laid at a great height; moreover, it is quite narrow and extremely unstable to wind gusts occurring regularly in this area. Passing through the bridge has become a familiar event for locals, but not all the travelers would be courageous enough. Despite the fact that the bridge looks quite fragile and badly shaken, it is very reliable and, the most importantly, it is equipped with high railings. Some shepherds put blinders on animals to make later behave quietly on the bridge; thanks to flaps animals overcome obstacles calmly and aren’t distracted by opening views of the Himalayas.
