Ferry over the Arun River

A permanent bridge is under construction at present at Dobhan near Num that connects Khandbari, the district headquarters of Sankhuwasabha with the remote northern parts of the district. Track has been opened to connect those remote locations, and the only way for vehicles to cross the Arun River is via ferry which is operated by government free of charge during working hours. First time in nearly a decade I had to cross the river on a ferry. Back then, I had similar experience in Bhojpur – that was also to cross the Arun River.
