Following this, we headed for Singshore Bridge, which is on the outskirts of Pelling. It was quite a journey. The road is decrepit and the turns can make the acids in your stomach swirl. There are no food stops, no toilets and no water counter on the way. So brace yourselves for a tiring 2 hours journey. On the way, you will find Changey falls, which is literally on the road. The car can stop for a brief period and some photos can be clicked. The water is cold and a splash on the face under the hot sun will only soothe the mind. Singshore Bridge is a massive structure. It is completely safe and beautiful. With lush green mountains on all sides, the forceful wind hits your face and you can hear every possible sound. A faint sound of water flowing through the steep edges can be heard. It is bliss to stand on that bridge. There are a few shops that sell chips and other eatables. Do buy something for the return journey.
