THE number of both local and foreign visitors is increasing day by day to the Gok Teik Viaduct located in Naungcho Township, Northern Shan State, a resident said.
Easing of rules for visitors by the authorities is one of the reasons why tourists choose to visit. In the past authorities set special rules for visitors.
The 2,260 foot (689 meter) long bridge was opened in 1903. When completed, it was the largest railroad trestle in the world. The station master has organised necessary arrangments for visitors.
