This summer you’ll be surprised by a new activity in Andorra: the Tibetan bridge in Canillo. Located in the heart of nature, it is just a short distance from the Roc del Quer, one of the most visited places in the Principality.
The new summer attraction: the Tibetan bridge of Canillo
The Tibetan Bridge of Canillo crosses over the Vall del Riu, located in the middle of nature, flying over it for 158 metres. It is at an altitude of 1875 metres on the Armiana side and 1884 metres on the Coll de Cauba. At 603 metres long, it is the second longest Tibetan bridge in the world with the same characteristics. The footbridge, which is minimalist, is 1 metre wide, weighs 200 tonnes and the passage is one-way. It can accommodate 60 people simultaneously.
It was inaugurated on Tuesday 7 June and this first season will be open until 30 November, from 10am to 7pm. Next year, a platform for extreme sports, such as bungee jumping, is planned.
How to get to the Tibetan Bridge of the Vall del Riu
The Tibetan bridge is in Canillo, about 10 minutes by car from the hotel on the road to Montaup. Access to the bridge is payable and can be bought in a pack with the Roc del Quer, which is very close to the footbridge. The ticket also includes public transport from the centre of Canillo or from Roc del Quer’s parking.
Also note that if you want to take advantage of the Roc del Quer viewpoint, from this year onwards it will also be paying (at least in the summer and autumn months). The price of the pack with the Tibetan bridge, the Roc del Quer and the bus is 14€.
To access it is necessary to book and buy the ticket in advance through their website: www.ponttibetacanillo.com.
