Arrival in Dibrugarh - Roing
Welcome at Dibrugarh Airport and drive Arunachal Pradesh crossing the impressive Dhola–Sadiya Bridge, the longest bridge in India (9.15 Km). On arrival, you clear entry with your Restricted Area Permits. Later drive to Roing. Evening at leisure. Night in a traditional guest house. Among the blue ranges of the eastern Himalayas in the backdrop lies the Mishmi Hills of Arunachal, little down in the foothills lies the Roing and Tezu town and further down in the plain was the town of Sadiya, which was once a bustling town of Assam that was inundated during the great earthquake of 1950. For years, the shortest route connection to these areas was a tedious ferry journey across Lohit river. Bhupen Hazarika Setu is the longest bridge in India with a span of 9.15 km, connecting Sadiya and eastern Arunachal with Dholla. Deservedly named after one of the icons from North East India 'Bhupenda', it is an engineering marvel, started in 2011 and completed in a span of 6 years in 2017. Alleviating the people of their enduring journey on ferry across Lohit river this bridge is truly a people-oriented development. We need more of such project.
