The view of the bridge is absolutely stunning, it rises higher than the clouds themselves and is located right above the Chenab river. 

The Chenab Bridge is being constructed in Jammu and Kashmir’s Reasi district. It is approximately 1,315 metre long and 359 metres above the river bed level. Yep. That’s how big it is! The magnificent construction project is a way to boost connectivity for Kashmir Valley.
