Longest bamboo bridge over oyster, mangrove and seashells farm

This shaking bamboo bridge is the result of the resolution of the people of Nagpanaoan, Alaska, Aringay to the LGU for them to have access to the “mainland” of Aringay. The children often run and play about in the bridge while the adults gingerly measure their steps.

At the time of the visit of KADUAMI staff and the two evaluators in the area, the fishponds are almost dry and the water level of the river is low. Notice the oysters clinging to the bamboo posts. The rafts are seldom used and people carry heavy objects over their shoulders across the long and winding bridge. Most parts of the bamboo bridge are still serviceable but in many places, the bamboo slats are destroyed.
