This is a very old structure built on Teesta river. You can stop on the bridge and take photographs on both sides. Very beautiful and scenic.

Wonderful views down into the river, with deep blue waters. We were amazed at the skills of the team of men painting the undercarriage of the bridge.

We crossed this bridge enroute Bagdogra to Phunetsholing. This bridge was constructed by Britishers and must be one of the oldest bridge of the region. You can see a nice scenic view of Teesta River and the Sevoke forest from here. One can spend 20-30 minutes here.

We enjoyed viewing this bridge straddling the gorge and were informed that it was built solely with manpower which makes it a monumental feat of Civil Engineering.

Coronation bridge itself is a historical bridge which also offers good sight seeing opportunity. We have Teesta river below and a gud scenic beauty of himalayas often decorated beautifully with clouds... On the way one can enjoy Maize and hot momos at sevoke.

I took a bus to here from one of the main bus junctions in siliguri. It is approximately 30 mins ride and 30 rupees. The bridge is over the Teesta river- and makes for beautiful pictures! it can be better enjoyed when there is less sun. There is also a kali temple nearby at walking distance,
