Suspension Bridges along Trail in Hiking Jiri to Everest Base Camp

18 Days Winter Self-Guided Solo Hike from Jiri to Mt. Everest Base Camp (5,364masl)
November 27 to December 15, 2015


Nepal Himalayas trail is famous for its suspension bridges. On my Jiri to Everest Base Camp solo trekking, there are 13 suspension bridges along the trail and its my first time to see and experience it.

I decided to feature this 13 suspension bridges along trail from Jiri to Everest Base Camp because I was amaze and excited crossing it. When I was just at home and looking through the pictures I felt scared of the height and its instability. But when I first made my turn to pass on the trail before Shivalaya Town, I took my first photo and ensure that no one passed-by with me. Yes its shaky especially when somebody was already walking while you are on the bridge, it adds-up to the chill. If group of donkeys and yaks or sometimes porters are crossing-by, please give the courtesy to let them arrived first to the other side, bridge is one-way only. The longest among this 13 bridges is the one between Nunthala and Jubhing at 109m while the highest is the upper part of double suspension bridge between Jorsale and Namche.

The double suspension bridge per 2nd to the last image below was featured in the movie "Everest" starting from 10mins 50 sec for about 30 secs. The upper section is the only passable to tourists.

The highest and longest suspension bridge in Nepal is Kushma, claimed also as the longest in the world. The height is 166m and the length is 347m with around 1,000 passengers daily crossing the bridge.
