|River with submerged bridge|
The bridge on the river made in 1916 by the British stood tall, and in the last 17 years the fury of the river had deposited so many rocks and boulders that all that’s left of the bride is the top of the pillar of the bridge, rest of the bridge is fully submerged in the rocks alone of the river.
I Spend a day at Jayanti, 32 km from ALipurdwar, is a forest, River Jayanti which is fed by glacier water from Bhutan, the water is crystal clear, the locals use it as drinking water and they fill large 20 liter bottles and use it as drinking water, and for cooking and so on.
