Trip to Karnali Bridge

July 29, 2014

Karnali Bridge, an agent between Western and Far Western Region Nepal. As of  it was nearby my hometown almost  30 km away, and is always basic for me so did not try to keep the information much even this bridge was built in front of my eyes. The sunlight was very bright with no clouds and letting us sweating most of the time with 4o degrees but being born the heat is normal for me. Thought to have a little bike tour rather than being lazy and lying down on a wooden couch, checked the bike and filled up the fuel in Munna’s shop, we call him Munna in my hometown in Thakurdwara Village. Leaving dust in the air on the gravel road headed up to Chisapani, after riding 13 km in a dusty stone gravel road reached Ambassa, you would be decorated with local dust powder in my village if you ride a bike and walking and passes any vehicles through you. almost 17 km highway passes through the Bardia National Park, registered my bike in Army checkpoint with speed limit allowed to make sure animal protection on the highway.

Almost 17 km highway passes through the Bardia National Park, registered my bike in Army checkpoint with speed limit allowed to make sure animal protection on the highway. We entered the highway, green and peaceful jungle on both sides, not much traffic and could see branches of trees were dancing with the blow of wind, and chances to encounter with wild animals anytime such as Tigers, Rhino, elephant, deer etc, birds were dancing in the sky and two wheels were kissing the heated road. Chisapani in a place in far western Nepal where the single pillar bridge is standing which holds Western and Far Western Region of Nepal.

Shops and groceries are scattered and very popular for fresh or dried fish from Karnali river and the spot to find buses too for local or long tours to Kathmandu or Pokhara. The longest Karnali river of Nepal is following through with its own speed which can be categorized winter and summer speed. Wherever you are around Chisapani, the spectacular views are always eyes alluring are on altitude almost 1300m and if you thrill your soul is the best option for green hill hiking to spot Terai region views. This longest river offers for 7 to 10 days white water rafting trip and finishes right under the bridge and can be added wildlife rafting trip afterward which finishes to the western boundary of Bardia National Park next to Elephant breeding center.

The Karnali Bridge was built in 1993 with the cable-stayed bridge which normally depends on one pylon with 500 m length and 10 m width.
The bridge was inauguration by ex-prime minister Girija Prasad Koirala.
