April 27th, 2015: Keshwa Chaca

Keshwa Chaca is the last Inca Rope Bridge.

Quote:
Five hundred years ago when the Incas were expanding their empire over the highlands of the Andes, they developed an incredible network of roads to move armies, people and goods quickly and efficiently over the mountains. But the landscape was treacherous comprising mostly of high peaks and deep valleys, which meant they needed bridges, and lots of them. The bridges were an integral part of the incredible Inca road system that stretches for 40,000 kilometers, from modern-day Ecuador to Argentina.


The Incas died out I the early 1600s and the bridges shortly after, except this one. Keshwa Chaca survives because the locals rebuild it every year.
