An awe-inspiring single span pre-stressed concrete bridge spans the deep gorge over the turbulent Lubha River, off Sunapur on the Shillong, Jowai-Badarpur-Silchar Road that is NH-44. The bridge serves as a critical link between the Brahmaputra Valley of Lower Assam and the Barak Valley of Cachar. It also serves as a virtual gateway for the land-locked States of Mizoram and Tripura on their overland routes through Meghalaya to Assam and beyond. The gorgeous terrain on either side of the bridge is covered by virgin reserve forests known as Narpuh Reserve Forest.

The funnel shaped valley of the Lubha River broadens out soon after crossing the bridge, as it meets the plains of Bangladesh. The international Indo Bangla frontier is not too far off from the location of the lofty Lubha Bridge. Within a kilometre of the bridge, located almost midway between Jowai and Silchar stands Sonapur, where nearly all inter-state traffic breaks journey to enable travellers to refresh themselves with delicious Lubha fish in the very many eating houses which dot either side of NH-44 at Sonapur.
