Construction of foundation of bridges in remote hilly terrain, in adverse climatic condition, isvery difficult due to the limited working period and unavailability of transportation of machinery and equipments as in Leh-Ladakh region of India. In such situations regular pile foundation is not feasible. The study was taken up with to carry out experimental design for bridge and ascertain the applicability of micro-piles as bridge foundation under such adverse conditions. The methodology included field and lab tests for soil and sub-soil investigation, vertical and lateral load tests on micro-piles. The design of micropile foundation and sub structure is based on success results of the tests i.e. the safe load capacity achieved in these tests. Based upon experimental success results, confirmation for using micro piles was accorded. In future, micro-piles can prove to be a better solution in where river bed is laden with boulders and other similar difficult situations
