Built a century ago by native aboriginals with hemp ropes and thick wooden planks, the footbridge at Capilano Suspension Bridge and Park hangs high in mid-air over the swift rapids of the Capilano River. The bridge swings and gives out a human-like cackling sound when winds blow across the valley, hence its nickname "Laughing Bridge". The suspension bridge straddles the Capilano River and swathes of leafy forest. Walking on the bridge, one is surrounded by nature, taking in not only the beautiful woodland, but also the snow peaks in the distance and the nearby ravine. If fortunate enough, one could also spot a splendid rainbow due to the vapor from the river.

The Capilano Suspension Bridge is a simple suspension bridge crossing the Capilano River in the District of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The current bridge is 140 metres long and 70 metres above the river. It is part of a private facility with an admission fee, and draws over 1.2 million visitors per year. The bridge was originally built in 1889 by George Grant Mackay, a Scottish civil engineer and park commissioner for Vancouver. It was originally made of hemp ropes with a deck of cedar planks, and was replaced with a wire cable bridge in 1903. In 1910 Edward Mahon purchased the Capilano Suspension Bridge. "Mac" MacEachran purchased the Bridge from Mahon in 1935 and invited local natives to place their totem poles in the park, adding a native theme. In 1945, he sold the bridge to Henri Aubeneau.

Vancouver|How to make a cool photo in the forest
There is a very famous place in Vancouver called Capilano Suspension Bridge Capellan Suspension Bridge, which is only ten minutes drive from the city. The Capellanu Suspension Bridge is located in a large virgin forest and is one of the must-see destinations in Vancouver. The day is really crowded with people.
In order to take photos of no one, I deliberately rushed in the early morning after I opened the door. In the morning, I just had rain and the air was still foggy, strolling in this virgin forest. The entire Kapelan Suspension Bridge is divided into three areas. The main bone is an extra long wooden bridge. It is more than 100 meters long and 70 meters high. It will be shaken when it is walking. It is very exciting. If you want to take good pictures, remember Punch the cliff path and the tree on the boardwalk, all three can be completed to receive a certificate!
Before Christmas, the Capellanu Suspension Bridge area will begin to install lighting, the biggest Christmas tree is here! By then, the entire park will be twinkling, especially beautiful! Remember not to miss ~

The suspension bridge is also called "Laughing Bridge", Vancouver's Punch Place
Capelano Suspension Bridge Capilano is the world's tallest pedestrian suspension bridge built on the valley and the oldest tourist attraction in Vancouver. The bridge is 137 meters long and hangs in the sky above 70 meters. How high is 70 meters? If the Statue of Liberty in New York is placed in a stream, the suspension bridge will probably be on the shoulder of the goddess. Under the bridge is the Capelan River, where the water is rushing. When the wind passes over the valley, the suspension bridge will sway and sound like a human laughter. Therefore, it is also called "Laughing Bridge." Although walking on the bridge can be frustrating, the Capilano suspension bridge is very strong and can carry 1,300 people, or the weight of 96 elephants standing on the bridge.
Walking on the suspension bridge, you can not only enjoy the beauty of the forest, but also the snow-capped mountains in the distance and the valleys in the vicinity. They are completely in the nature. If you are lucky, you can also see the rainbow caused by the river vapor.
There is also a "cliff walk" Cliff Walk, which is a glass walkway between the vertical cliffs. The soles of the feet are the abyss, and the distant view on it becomes a thrilling experience. In addition, "Treetop Adventure" Treetop Adventure: In the half-waist of the giant tree, it is connected with a rope and a wooden board. It is tens of meters high from the ground and is surrounded by the forest to feel the breath of nature.
This is one of the must-see attractions in Vancouver. Although it is far from the city, there are intimate free buses that can be reached directly. The bus is very convenient and will pass through the main stations.
This fascinating suspension bridge claims to be "the greatest bridge in the world" but it feels a little scary
