In 2000, a bamboo bridge was installed during the dry season. It was meant to be a foot bridge but the intrepid locals rode bicycles and motorbikes across it, skidding down the loose soil from the river banks. Every year, the bridge was dismantled before the rains in June, and reinstalled in January.

We anticipate that the revenues from the zip line will go a long way towards paying the costs of running Grace School.
Now imagine our sales pitch for an "eco"adventure trip to Nepal: Motor bike ride to Bani, ride one way on the zip line, return on the teetering boat. Then ride a water buffalo, milk it, pet a goat, catch a greased pig, or a muddy one. End the day on a rickety bicycle back to Tikapur, take a shower before power goes out at 7 pm. Swat a few mosquitoes, spray on bug goop, eat a sumptuous Nepali dinner, and check your shoes for scorpions before you head to bed. remember that you first read about the greatest "eco"adventures at this blog.
