Hi, I would love to do some trekking in Nepal in October but some friends told me there are a lot of rope bridges on many treks. Are these on all the treks? I get vertigo and don't want to end up turning back through this. Any advice would be appreciated.
PS Have tried checking myself but information is a bit limited re this part!!!
I plan on trekkin Nepal nxt yr and been lookin alot and havent come across any mention of rope bridges myself.
Also spent time in N. Africa with a girl who suffered from vertigo and she done Annapurna and Everestt base camp, and only thing she said ref her vertigo was the attitude brought it on abit but nothing to worry about.
Hope it helps abit
many thanks for that, sounds like its a goer!
erm, there are bridges, depends on what trek you do. Rope bridges are a bit rare. They are new steel rope bridges. While some of them are seriously high, and long. I never once saw one that looked like it was about to collapse. A lot of them are sponsored by the British army, for Gurka recognition support.
I am running a bit low on space, but here's a link to a photo I took of one of these bridges on the APC. It's not a high quality photo, but the bridge is fine. Think I have a video of crossing as well somewhere.
I am not a fan of heights, seriously not a fan. But managed fine.
Thanks for the photos, it doesn't look too bad!
Feel a little less worried now,
