Coronation Bridge at Siliguri

Coronation Bridge

#Sight Seeing
The Coronation Bridge across the Teetsa river is over 100 years old and marks the start of the road to Butan from Siliguri. The river canyon is a beautiful and fascinating drive. But the road is quite narrow and there is heavy and impatient traffic so it is not the road for the faint of heart. We were very grateful...
