Photographer's Note

A local told me that the bridge is build every year after the end of rain season. During the dry season(last about 6-7 months) with the bridge erected, people can easily cross the river from their village.
During rain season the river will flood and have strong current. The bamboo bridge would not survive the current and will get destroyed. Once the rain seasons stop, the villagers will collect money to build a new bridge. And the cycle continues....
....until this year. Currently the goverment is building a permanent concrete bridge and scheduled to finish soon. So there wont be another bamboo bridge in this spot next year. Sad for us photographers but I'm sure its economically make more sense for the locals.
