Helan canyon suspension bridge

The 1200 meters long suspension walking bridge in Helanshan is 2 meters wide and 135 meters high from the ground. It could support at most 1000 people at the same time. It connects the pine scenic spot QingChongLing 青松岭 and on the other side, you could see there is a classy pagoda -Shiji Pagoda 世纪塔 on the other end. It is exciting to see that the whole combination makes such a picturesque landscape, until you have to walk on the bridge by foot. Till now, it is the highest and longest suspension walking bridge.
