A jeep running up the Karakoram Highway from Gilgit can cross the Hunza River on this suspension bridge and head up the tributary valley to Chaprot. Think the bridge is old-fashioned? I draw your attention to the fifth chapter of Algernon Durand's The Making of a Frontier, 1900: "In the whole course of the river only two bridges existed, both of them twig rope suspension bridges..., and there was no other means of crossing the river when in flood."
