The tour is not just bridges but a series of trails that wind between the bridges. In total, these trails cover 3.3km. There are eight different bridges which have lengths and heights that vary between 50 to 170m long and 12 and 60m high.. Every bridge is 1.5m wide and has a capacity for 60 people. The sides of the bridges are fenced off with the railings reaching chest height. The hanging bridges are designed for people of every age and reasonable physical condition. Guides are available at certain times for an extra price
As the bridges are suspended they do bounce a little. Overall the feeling is pretty secure due to the high railings and solid structure. Unless you have an acute fear of heights this should not be a problem. The bridges offer a nice perspective with plenty of time to look around and take photos. You can see many small trees and ferns from above and also admire birds that inhabit the upper regions of the trees. The trails are in excellent condition.
It takes about an hour and a half to walk the bridges, depending on the speed you walk or if you stop to take many photos.
