  • Very beautiful suspension bridge. It is steady and long. You can cross the bridge by walking, it an amazing experience. You cab enjoy the view of the river from the bridge. You can enjoy the situation if so many people move through the bridge, it will jump and create a movement, just thrilling.
  • Beautiful scene. Longest suspension bridge over river Mo
  • Great place and amazing view of the river beneath. Definitely a go to. The walk across is exciting.
  • The suspension bridge is very sturdy and long. One needs to walk through broken path for 15-20 minutes to reach the bridge. But the view of the river from here is amazing. If there are too many people moving, the bridge jumps and sways a lot but it's really fun. Especially fun for kids.
  • Well built and maintaned metal bridge going over the male river. Cuts short foot travel distance from both sides as next option is 5km away. Worth a visit if you have a day cab with you.
