Galkot: The process has begun to register the 567-meter long suspension bridge connecting Baglung and Parvat in the Guinness book of world records.

Baglung Municipality claims that this suspension bridge is the longest bridge in the world which is built across the river of Kaligandaki. That’s why the process has been initiated to register it in the Guinness book of world records.

The suspension bridge has already been handed over to Baglung Municipality after its completion, according to the Suspension bridge division of Kathmandu. The process was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic in the country.

Senior engineer of Kathmandu Huma Kanta Mishra says that upon the study of various websites from across the world, the only longer suspension bridge found in Switzerland is 494 meters long which supports the evidence that the suspension bridge built across Kaligandaki -connecting Balgung and Parvat could be the longest in the world.

Now, the Baglung Municipality is submitting an application to the Guinness book of the world record for observation and evaluation after which it will be verified to be the longest in the world said the municipality authorities.

The suspension bridge is 138 meters high and was built at an expense of nearly 120 million rupees.
