The Hanging Bridge
The Hanging Bridge Bohol Reviews
pretty cool! Jul 12, 2012
The walk through the hanging bridge was pretty cool especially for my kids. They were thrilled as the bridge swayed left and right while they move forward. The Hanging Bridge hangs about 25 meters above the Loboc River. A wonderful “aerial” view of the river surrounded by different exotic tropical plants like bamboo trees, coconut trees, ferns, mangroves and other kinds of big trees are visible while on the middle of the bridge or in the area.
The bridge is made of bamboos and hardened steels. So yes it is safe. Just always be careful when crossing the bridge and be sure to hold on to the steel bars. The load limit of the footbridge is only 10 persons to pass at a time. They will prohibit any person to pass the Hanging Bridge if beyond the load limit. Local kids are allowed to cross the bridge even without an adult with them and yet there have been no reported accidents. When the bridge became popular in the internet, many of the visitors came to visit, experience crossing a bamboo hanging bridge. During this time the local government decided to add another bridge to be used as exit, while the old one as entrance.
There is an entrance fee of PhP20.00 to cross this bridge even though it is not really a tourist attraction per se. Foreigners tried it themselves and were happy because for them this is something different.
On the village side, locals are selling souvenir items such as ukulele, hats, fans, bags, shirts and many others.
