The world’s longest suspension bridge over Kaligandaki River in Baglung district that links with neighbouring Parbat district has been given the name in Nepali and English.

The 567-metre bridge over the Kaligandaki River has been named ‘Gandaki Golden Bridge’ in English and ‘Gandaki Sunaulo Jhula’ in Nepali.

 An executive meeting of Baglung Municipality, the patron of the bridge, took a decision in this regard. The bridge’s name in Nepali and English has been approved, said the municipality mayor Janak Raj Poudel.

The municipality had called for interested people to propose the name of the bridge. The municipality has also announced Rs 25,000 for the selected applicant. Only the top 10 names suggested by applicants had been recommended. Civil servant Ghanashyam Sapkota of Baglung-5 has been selected for the award.

The municipality has applied for the bridge to claim the Guinness World Records title as the world’s longest suspension bridge.
