Cane Bridge

While reading up on tips on what to do in Sikkim we came across cane bridges as a must-do in many write-ups. So we were thrilled to spot one in the Lingee Payong village towards the end of our trip.

They are made of long sections of bamboo held together by strong metal cords, and the river gushes below it.

We tread cautiously over it, making each step deliberately, muttering a prayer, because it was shaking with each step.


And then some local folks, the villagers, walked by ... easily as on a daily routine!
and then, she {snapped}
