A suspension bridge has been constructed over the Samrong river in ward no. 11 of Annapurna Rural Municipality in Kaski district. The bridge, constructed at a cost of ten million rupees, serves the Annapurna circuit trekking route and was built with the help of the Kadoorie family, a wealthy British family based in Hong Kong. Trekkers had to walk for almost an hour to cross the river. The 287 metres long and 135 metres high bridge is now the longest and highest suspension bridge in Kaski district. The bridge is expected to benefit local residents of Jhinu, Chimrong, Samrong and Taulu villages of Ghandruk and hundreds of trekkers heading to Annapurna Base Camp. The trekking route to ABC attracts up to one hundred thousand foreign trekkers every year. (RSS)
