The Nepalese bridge of the Lucanian Dolomites connects the two starting points of the Via Ferrate Salemm (Castelmezzano) and Marcirosa (Pietrapertosa) and can be reached by passing through the Antro delle Streghe or the plateau that runs along the Caperrino stream, the center of the 7 stones route.
Nepalese bridge length 72 meters
Maximum height from the ground 35 meters to 650 meters above sea level.
The Nepalese Bridge can be crossed by a maximum of 15 people at the same time, and must always be walked safely hooked to the lifeline with a special via ferrata kit (lifeline diameter 25 mm).
The Nepalese Bridge is an integral part of the Via Ferrata of the Lucanian Dolomites
To travel a via ferrata, it is essential to have the specific material for this activity, to know its correct use and climbing progression techniques.
On a via ferrata, the shocks due to a fall are extremely violent.
No material resists shocks. This is why the use of the heatsink is mandatory.
We recommend that everyone, but especially beginners, be accompanied by a guide or by experienced people
