Col Chewang Rinchen Setu bridge

Col Chewang Rinchen Setu bridge is said to be India's highest altitude all-weather permanent bridge

At an elevation of 4.358m (14,297ft) above the sea level, Col Chewang Rinchen Setu bridge is India's highest altitude all-weather permanent bridge.

Located on the border of Leh district in the union territory of Ladakh in India, close to Chinese-controlled Aksai Chin, it’s one of the most spectacular bridges in the world. The bridge was built in 2019 by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO). It’s made of steel and concrete.
The bridge is 426 meters (1400-ft) long and was built it in 15 months using 6900 cubic meters of concrete and 1984 metric tons of steel. It carries the Darbuk–Shyok–DBO Road (DS-DBO Road/DSDBO Road), also called the Sub-Sector North Road (SSN Road). Located 45 km east of Line of Actual Control (LAC) with China, the road is a strategic military road for India. The bridge is 4.5 metres wide and can accommodate vehicles of 70 tons. It reduces time of travel by nearly half and improves the development of border areas and villages across Shyok River.
