Hanging bridge [Sunday Bridges]



A hanging bridge at the Forest Camp in Valencia, 11 kilometers west of Dumaguete City.  Forest Camp is a 2.3-hectare mountain resort at the foot of Mount Talinis.  It has guest houses, a campsite, a conference hall and a pool cascading from Banica River.

I would like to cross that bridge, that would be a challenge! As long as it's not windy... :)

What fun to cross! Well, until someone decides to jump around and make the thing sway. Nice green scenery!

I like this kind of bridge as long as it doesn't sway too much and as long as it isn't up too too high. The Camp looks like a fun place. MB

It looks amazing - I would like to be there:)
Happy Sunday!

Hah! I have some form of vertigo and my knees go weak when I look down too far, and yet I love to cross these hanging bridges in the Philippines. Haven't seen this one; nice capture, Luna!

I have a big laugh of myself! This is my hometown and I have not been here! My friend did the feasibility study of Forest Camp before it started construction. Shame on me.

I can cross this bridge, it is not that high, I could see the river.

Appropriately rustic - «Louis» would like to cross it and visit the camp.

«Louis» appreciates your contributions to Sunday Bridges.

This rustic bridge looks like it would be fun to cross - as others have said - as long as its not swaying.
;-D

Cool, I love hanging bridges. Nice view of the river.

What a lovely bridge. I would love to visit there someday. I can't believe how gorgeous it is. Enjoy it for me until I get there!
I almost went there years ago. My brother had served a mission for the LDS church in Manila and he was going back when they dedicated the LDS temple. I made the mistake of not going. Wish I had, it is so beautiful

You get to cross the most interesting bridges.

Halcyon said...

Does it sway back and forth? I might never make it to the camp!

Bella said...

What a fun bridge... so perfectly quaint... you would have to see the mystery of the other side:-)

Looks really nice. I'd love to visit - it's so lush and the bridge has got character.

It doesn't look as though it's too high up, so it would be my kind of bridge to walk over.

These scare me as I suffer from motion sickness easily. But I like to look at them!!

I've been there a long time ago. This photo brings back a LOT of memories, especially about eating kamayan style. :)
