Tibetan bridges

An airborne trek

Puente tibetano

Also called a monkey bridge, it is a traditional Tibetan structure used to cross canyons, rivers or vertical passes. It is made up of three intertwined ropes: two of them are parallel, to be grasped in the hands, and a lower one, for your feet. Tibetan bridges are often featured in adventure sports circuits offered by active tourism companies.

The hanging bridges that cross the canyon of the Turia at Chulilla, as a part of the Marsh Trail (Senda de los Pantaneros) are particularly impressive.
