Submersible bridges

The wide rivers of Kochi rise very quickly after heavy rain, and to cope with this phenomenon, the bridges are built without parapets or railings in order to present the least resistance to the pressure of floodwater. Consequently, the bridges can be completely submerged without suffering damage.

These picturesque bridges are good for jumping off, assuming that you can swim. It’s also wise to assess the depth carefully and ensure that your body is prepared for the cold. Most casualties result from heart attacks brought on by the excitement and sudden chill.
