BALER HANGING BRIDGE

The Bridge was built not really intended for tourist attraction yet it’s more for local’s use, but the distinctive view of the river from a different perspective is what makes the hanging bridge popular. The Bridge connects two areas BarangayTibang and Barangay Sabang. It is located at the endpoint of Zabali road. Zabali Road is cemented but if you are about to reach the endpoint, it becomes a rough road. When you arrive at the dead end of Zabali Road, a stunning concrete bridge will welcome you. On the both sides of the bridge’s stairway are few local households. There is also a small variety store at the right side. On the left side is a small way for you to view the hanging bridge from down under. Read More: http://www.ilovetansyong.com/2013/12/hangover-from-hanging-bridge-in-brgy.html

After a bit of history it was time to indulge in something more adventurous. Not too far from the town center and along Zabali Road, is the Baler Hanging Bridge. The hanging bridge is a steel-cable foot bridge over the moss-green waters of the Tibag-Sabang River. This river empties into Baler Bay at a point just to the south of Sabang Beach. We had a grand view of the river mouth while crossing the bridge.
The bridge itself was tilting alarmingly to one side, the result – our trike driver and tour guide said – of Typhoon Lando’s strong winds which struck this region just a few weeks before. It did not prevent us from crossing the bridge at least up to the center of the span. However crossing this bridge back in 2011 was even more hair-raising.
