Monte Carasso Tibet Bridge - Taxi Lugano

The Tibetan Bridge in the valley of Sementina, Tessin, Switzerland

The rope bridge in the valley of Sementina was today (31.5.2015) officially inaugurated as planned.

“Along 270 mts and weighing about 50 tons, the bridge built by the Tibetan Foundation Curzútt-S. Barnard will traverse the rugged valley that divides the towns of Monte Carasso and Sementina. The bridge connects Curzutt S. Bernardo and the Via delle Vigne, allowing everyone to make excursions in an area rich in historical presence, landscape, food and wine.

Anchored at a height of 696 m, the bridge’s point center rises to 130 m “over the river making it the longest suspension bridge in the Alps.” The walkway, has no more than one meter wide, scarce, and it is wood larch made. Touring it is a now a unique experience, thanks to tight security, involving experienced hikers, young and intrepid families that could allow it.

The main feature of the Bridge is it’s elasticity, (as expected!), otherwise how could it be possible to resist to the wind strength, or the heavy snow loads, and also the people’s weight crossing it.

“The bridge is easily accessible thanks to the Monte Carasso’s funicular to Mornera passing through Curzùtt. The ancient and picturesque hill town, is the ideal starting point to discover an area rich in historical facts.” Source: website –

It is expected that the bridge could attract 20 to 40 thousand tourists a year. It is surely a real nice attraction to be added to many other from Canton Ticino. But this will have undoubtedly a special meaning for the municipals, as it could encourage their “hearts” to forget some quarrels occurred in the past  😉.
