This is an amazing suspension bridge 1000 feet above the valley floor:

Thanks for sharing, an amazing feat of engineering!!
The picture of the bridge in early morning is beautiful.

Wow, not bad! These images give a good feel for the difficulties of sustaining a large scale campaign in this region. Must have been easy to spring some ambushes on the IJA there with all the routes restricted to narrow valleys.

I'm slightly worried that my first thought on seeing those pics was how many supply points did that cost to build. Impressive engineering.
