Spanning the Centuries

This iron chain suspension bridge or Chag-Zam is estimated to be almost 600 years old. Spanning more than 100 meters across the Tawang River, it represents a rare and remarkable architectural achievement. Of several dozen such Chag-Zam bridges said to have been constructed in the Eastern Himalayan region, only four remain intact today with this being the only one of its kind in India.
