1913. It is 2260 feet long and was built 320 feet high above a
deep ragged stone rock valley. The Rock itself is 550 feet high
above the small river that flows under the rock. Although the
viaduct is destroyed in the second-World war, Myanma railway
repaired the bridge. Due to its technical and natural condition
it was considered as a masterpiece of
the world standard. Mr
Paul Theroux said his book " The Great Railway Bizarre" called
the viaduct " a monster of silver geometry in all the ragged
rock and jungle---its presence was bizarre". It is the most
important viaduct in Mandalay Lashio rail-road section and the
