India’s Spiti Valley is home to wonders that make for a lifetime’s experience. While most of those wonders are quite popular in the tourism circuit, there is a secret that not many know about. Yes, it is home to Chicham Bridge, the highest bridge in Asia, and quite an astounding spectacle at that.
The bridge is at a staggering height of 13596 ft and connects the two villages named Chicham and Kibber. Look down this one and you will find yourself gaping below, at a 1000 ft deep gorge! The gorge below is known by the name of Samba Lamba Nallah; the making of this bridge cuts down the journey from Kibber to Losar by 40 km.
Chicham Bridge was constructed over a course of 15 years, and was inaugurated in 2017. It costed a whopping INR 485.50 lakhs to get the bridge constructed. It has recently become quite a rage with the travellers, a number of them taking videos and photos of the phenomenon. Instagram, of course, is brimming over with awe-inspiring visuals from the bridge.
Travellers can also move towards the Chandratal Lake after crossing the bridge, another wonder that lies in the folds of the Himalayas here. You can also explore the surrounding region that comprises of Kaza, Komic, Langza, Dhankar, Tabo and Nako. Those keen to explore more can also head to the Mud village.
