Chorbat Valley- River Crossover bridge

This ancient, unique engineered and wooden bridge is located in the upper most village Saltoro. As narrated by locals, this bridge is more than 50 year old. Stability and stiffness is due to state of the art design of local carpenters. This is a pedestal crossing bridge having weight capacity of 1ton, roughly equals to 15 men.
