the way from Taksindu to Hewa, people have to cross the Hewa Khola.
Especially during monsoon it becomes a whitewater river. Until 2013,
this river had to be crossed by a small wodden bridge that had ro be
replaced by a new bridge every few years. On application of HSCC, the
government has constructed a suspension bridge made of steel in autumn
2013. It is a lot longer than the earlier wooden bridge. So, the people
don't have to walk down to the bottom of the river valley what makes
their walk a bit more comfortable.
A few hundred meters downstream, the path from Hewa to Nunthala, the administrative centre of Taksindu VDC crosses the Hewa Khola. There had been a small wooden bridge as well. This way has to be used by school children everyday. There is only a primary school at Hewa. The sondary school is at Nunthala. In 2012, the French organisation Népal et vous has constructed a suspension bridge at this place that is similar to the just mentioned one that has been built by the government on the way to Chhulemu and Taksindu. This bridge has made the way from Hewa to Nunthala faster and safer.
