This bridge was identified by Kalu Tamang, during our visit to the Harper bridge at Mangaltar. I am grateful to Nirmal Raj Joshi for the photographs, since we have not managed to see it for ourselves during either of our two trips to that country.  It appears identical to the bridge at Mangaltar.  On today’s Google Earth a road bridge has appeared downstream.
