Dare to drive the dangerous Chicham Bridge
Located in the Himalaya mountains in the north-eastern part of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh, the Chicham Bridge is said to be the World's highest bridge from sea level at 4.037m (13,244ft). It’s one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.
The bridge is situated above a deep gorge about 1000 feet high. Before this bridge the villagers of Chicham used a dangerous ropeway to cross this section. This brought relief to these villages. The new bridge was under construction for 14 years.
This suspension bridge was open for vehicles on 15th Aug 2017. It connects Kibber village to Chicham village. Located in the Spiti valley, over the Parilungbi Canyon, the bridge is 113.83 m (373.47 ft) long.
