The cable bridge has been rebuilt many times.

On the cliff of the Apurimac River in Peru’s Cuzco Mountains, there is a large cable bridge called Queswachaca, which is 100 feet (30.48 meters) long and is the only way for an ancient and isolated village to connect with the outside world.
The ancestors of this village are the Mochica, one of the original inhabitants of Peru. Starting from the 13th century, Inca tribes expanded outward from the Cuzco basin and successively occupied the whole of Peru and some nearby areas, establishing the Inca empire with Cuzco as its capital.
The prosperous Inca empire soon attracted the coveted attention of Spain. In 1504, Spanish colonial adventurer Alf Pizarro led expeditionary forces to invade the Inca empire. Within a few years Peru was reduced to a Spanish colony. The Mochica people hid in the mountains and escaped the disaster.
When peace is restored in the world, the Mochica people still have no plans to return to the plain. They feel that it is better to live in the mountains and live a peaceful life free from disputes. Even so, the Mochica people inevitably have to contact with the outside world, such as buying necessities or selling surplus food. To facilitate travel, in 1519, the Mochica decided to build a bridge across the great cliff of the Apurimac River. However, their production capacity is limited. How can a bridge be built? And the bridge must be convenient for them to get in and out and prevent foreign enemies from invading. Finally, the Mochica people decided to build a large cable bridge for the scattered travel of the people, but also to resist the invasion of foreign enemies, because the cable bridge could not bear the load of troops in droves.
The Mochica people weave thin chains of vines and straw, and then weave these thin chains into braided thick and durable ropes. Finally, some people carry the other end of the ropes, cross the river and fix the ropes to the other side of the Apurimac River.
It took the Mochica more than a month to build the bridge for the first time. However, after all, the cable bridge is made of straw rope. It is exposed to the sun and rain outside and is vulnerable to corrosion. Therefore, the Mochica people will do their best to rebuild the cable bridge every year. In rainy years, they even need to rebuild twice a year. In this way, year after year, rebuilding the bridge has become a tradition of the Mochica people. Since the bridge was first built in 1519, according to the records of the clan, the bridge has been rebuilt 506 times!
Now, the time for building the bridge has been greatly shortened. From the demolition of the old bridge to the construction of the new bridge, the entire reconstruction process involves 1,000 ethnic groups and takes only 3 days to complete, working 12 hours a day. After completion, the Mochica people will hold a huge celebration to show their celebration.
Today, when modern technological elements are flooding every corner of the earth, the Mochica people still take pains to adhere to the tradition of making rope bridges by hand, which perplexes every tourist who comes here. In response, the current chief of the clan, Arkady Bair, explained this way: “The Ques-wachaca Bridge is a symbol of the unity and friendship of the Mochica people! People get along with each other, it is inevitable that there will be a little contradiction and friction. In the process of building the bridge through cooperation, all barriers will be eliminated naturally. It is like a refueling bottle, adding lubricating oil to people’s life regularly, so that people can get along more united and harmonious! “
