The longest footbridge span ever built in Asia, the Gandaki Golden Footbridge is a major tourist attraction near the small city of Baglung, Nepal. The entire Kali Gandaki River gorge region between Baglung and Kushma has become a museum of Nepal-style footbridges with at least 7 major spans of notable length and height.

Also known as the Baglung Parbat Foobridge, the giant crossing opened in 2020 as the world's longest footbridge span before it was surpassed in 2022 by the Sky Bridge 721 in the Czech Republic. The deck height of 122 meters can support a maximum load of 85 tons or 612 people. A plaque at the bridge site also refers to it as the Bangechaur Aduwabari Bridge.
