Where is the Capilano Bridge?

Origin: 1956. Length: 136 m.

The Capilano Bridge, located in the immediate vicinity of Vancouver, is not only considered to be extreme, but also one of the most beautiful bridges on earth. It enables the passage over the Capilano river and is located in a magically beautiful natural area, surrounded by the evergreen forests. At the entrance to the bridge you can see totem columns erected in honor of the leader of the Squamish tribe. Few centuries ago this tribe lived on the territory of the modern city. The river and later the bridge were named in his honor.

The first bridge was built in 1889 and was developed according to the project of the Scottish engineer George Grant Mackey. The bridge on which tourists can walk nowadays was opened in 1956. Its length is 136 meters. The construction is absolutely safe and can carry the weight of 96 elephants. Despite the guarantee of full safety, you still have to be very brave to cross the bridge. It hangs at a great height and swings with you when you walk. People who are sensitive to altitude can feel dizzy and panicked on the bridge in just a few seconds. It has to be mentioned that the Calipano bridge is private property, therefore the passage over the bridge is chargeable. Around 900,000 tourists visit the unique attraction every year. Next to the bridge, in the national park there are a lot of attractions and entertainment facilities. Next - Ojuela Bridge
