The longest span pedestrian bridge is the Baglung Parbat Footbridge, a catenary suspension bridge that measures 567 m (1,860 ft) from one anchor to another. The bridge crosses the Kali Gandaki River near Baglung Bazar, a town in Gandaki Province, Nepal. The bridge was opened to the public on 30 July 2020.
A catenary suspension bridge (or simple suspension bridge) is one in which the load-bearing cables and the deck follow the same catenary (drooping) curve from one anchor point to another. Traditional rope bridges and walkways are catenary suspension bridges. The modern suspension bridge (or suspended-deck bridge) is distinguished by the use of towers, which elevate the load-bearing cables above the deck.
