Two Barangay in Sevilla, Bohol was separated by a river called Sipatan River which is also connected to Loboc River. The hanging Bridge was the one connecting them, which is now known as one of the tourist attraction of Bohol.
What made it unique from other hanging bridges we’ve known is that, it was made from woven bamboo slats. Originally, the bridge was only made up from bamboo and rope later on, it was supported by a cable wire for additional safety for people crossing the bridge.
The bridge is about 40 meters long and laid 20-25 meters high above from the river. Before, it has only one bridge, but later on, another bridge was added. The first one is where you enter and the other one is the way going back.
Travelling 32 kilometer from Tagbilaran City will be all worth it once you arrive the place. With an Affordable Entrance Fee of 20 pesos, a lot of tourist, local or national are visiting the location everyday specially dry season. The funds collected will be used as maintenance for the bridges.
As you start crossing, you can feel that the bridge sways side to side and bounces up and down which adds more thrill and excitement. There’s nothing to worry about for it is just normal and 100% safe. There are also photographers on stand by for those who wants to have their picture taken for souvenir purposes. You can buy the developed pictures at the other end of the bridge where little souvenir shop, snacks and beverages can be found. They also sell fresh buko juice that are helpful for quenching your thirst after thrilling up a bit. Once you go back, experience again the thrill on crossing the other bridge on the way back.
