The Q’eswachaka Bridge has been rebuilt in this same location continually since the time of the Inca. Every year the local community members take down the current bridge and rebuild a new one…by hand.

A grass called ‘q,oya’ is used to create long rope like structures which are stretched across the canyon. Individuals then weave smaller ropes made with q’oya throughout the length of the bridge. A rather impressive feat, but I don’t think I would want to take a stroll across this ‘weaving’ bridge!
