The Bhuntar-Manali Bypass Bridge.

Silhouetted against an early evening sun, the Bhuntar-Manali bypass bridge makes for a framed picture of new age structural engineering in Hatithan, Bhuntar. Since its inauguration, the bridge has provided incoming vehicles, specially during the heavy tourist seasons, with a faster route to Manali – bypassing bottlenecks on the narrow National Highway 21 as well as many picturesque small hamlets on the right bank. Walkways on the sides let pedestrians cross over without having to step on the main bridge.
