1. Beipanjiang Bridge Guanxing
Towering 366 metres above the Beipan River, this bridge near Guizhou’s Zhenfeng County was the highest bridge in the world when it opened in 2003. A suspension bridge on Guanxing Highway, it serves both cars and pedestrians at the side walkways. From the bridge, you get a bird’s eye view of the vast Beipan River gorge, its mountain ridges and steep cliffs. A stunning sight that shows you what natural beauty Guizhou has to offer.
