This suspension bridge is made from about 5 tons of actinidia arguta (mountain vines). It is 45-meter long, 2-meter wide and 14 meters above the water.

Vines connect the wooden bars that are about 10 cm apart, so the gaps make the experience very thrilling!

The bridge is lit up every night from 7PM to 9PM. Crossing the bridge at night is a totally different experience.

This area is called an unexplored region because in the past you could not get there without crossing the precipitous cliff.
