Travel Photo: Cantilever Bridges of Bhutan

I have a penchant for traditional bridges. Love the living root bridges in North East India, the tradition U Bein bridge near Mandalay in Myanmar, the cantilever bridges of Bhutan and basically anything that excites my senses or sends adrenaline rushing into my blood (like a swinging tall rope bridge over a winding mountain river).

Well, the cantilever bridges of Bhutan don’t have what an adrenaline junkie needs, but it has some serious background as it is deep rooted in Bhutan’s traditions. More or less every major town has such a cantilever bridge across its fast mountain river. Like most of Bhutan’s buildings, these do not have a single nail in them and some of them are well decorated inside. For example, some of them might have a mural of the famous wheel of life portrayed on its walls. It is also one of those places that offer a great opportunity for the photographer to see local life whizz past them.
