A salute to our engineers. Added to my bucket list in ‘22-‘23. But I suspect there will be a waiting list for tourists who just want to check it out. 👏👏👏 pic.twitter.com/4cn24Ue9Xn

He Also Wants to Visit Ladakh
Built over the Chenab river, this bridge will be the lifeline that will join the Kashmir Valley with India’s rest. This bridge forms the crucial link in the 111-km stretch between Katra and Banihal, which is part of the Udhampur- Srinagar-Baramulla section of the Kashmir Railway project. This bridge is constructed on the Katra-Banihal railway line in the Reasi district. The bridge is reported to be 1.3-kilometer-long in length. Around 1,400 men, 500 of whom are locals, are working through the day to complete the structure. Apart from this Anand Mahindra also wishes to visit Ladakh for a vacation and meet his grandchildren as part of his travel bucket list.
Live Mint has reported that Indian Railways is also planning to start bungee jumping and other adrenaline-driven sports events at the bridge. With more sightseeing points, trekking routes, and hotels, this destination will soon be a favourite among Indians and foreigners. If this glorious bridge and Ladakh are part of your bucket list too, then here’s a video of Ladakh to get you going.
