The Last Handwoven Bridge - Canas, Peru

Known as keshwa chaca, this is the only remaining example of the Incan handwoven bridges once common in the Incan road system. Made of woven grass, the bridge spans 118 feet and hangs 220 feet above the canyon’s rushing river.

The Incan women braided small, thin ropes, which were then braided again by the men into large support cables, much like a modern steel suspension bridge. Handwoven bridges lasted as long as 500 years and were held in very high regard by the Inca. The punishment for tampering with such a bridge was death.

Over time, however, the bridges decayed, or were removed, leaving this single testament to Incan engineering. This previously sagging bridge was repaired in 2003, christened with a traditional Incan ceremonial bridge blessing, and is now in extremely good condition.

It’s the perfect location for anyone wishing to indulge in a long-harbored Indiana Jones fantasy.

Not big on heights? Safely cross the Last Handwoven Bridge on Atlas Obscura…

Yes please. Now on my list of things to see.

When you start your test and ask your participant to use your website/app to accomplish a task, don’t ask:

"How would you do [task] using this website/app?"

Instead, ask:

"Please do [task] using this website/app."

Why is this important?

For your participant, this little tweak will…
