Singing at Singshore

We never thought we would make it here but did. The incessant monsoon rains, landslide-infested roads and the steep and slippery terrain notwithstanding, our expert driver and guide ensured we would not miss one of the “wonders of Asia”, as the Singshore suspension bridge is called.The highest bridge in Sikkim and the second highest bridge in Asia, the ‘hanging’ structure is over 100 meters in height. Located about 5 kilometers from Pelling town of West Sikkim, the bridge is approximately 200 meters in length and is an engineering accomplishment made possible by connecting two gorges.The downward view from the bridge is overwhelming with the sight of beautiful waterfalls and breathtaking views of the green hillsides above are pleasing.
