Shimshal valley

Shimshal bridge picture
Suspension bridge in the Shimshal valley .

This photograph shows a suspension bridge that one has to cross going from Dut, North-East towards the village of Shimshal. I'm looking down on the bridge, before descending the cliffs to reach it. The bridge is precariously constructed from planks, rocks and rusted steel rope. The whole thing rests on a pick-axe head jammed into the rock.
