This bridge is used to connect the Danyore to the Karakorum University across the River Hunza. But nowadays only pedestrians are allowed to pass through and vehicles are not allowed to go through by some  unknown reason. Alternatively, a two way concrete bridge has also been built which started functioning in 2013. Before the suspension bridge, a boat was used which was locally called Jaloo, so to avoid difficulty by travelling by boat, in 1960s, the suspension bridge was constructed to ease the crossing of river.

This place is a Chinese Graveyard, which  is the last resting place of those Chinese workers and engineers who lost their lives during the construction of Karakorum Highway in Pakistan during 1960s and 1970s.
