  1. Iron Chain Bridge in Shigu Town,Lijiang

Iron Chain Bridge

There is a famous iron chain bridge spanning across the Chongjiang River that flows along from the left side of Stone Drum Town (a pivotal place on the ancient route for transportation of commercial goods, particularly tea, by horses between inland provinces and Tibet in China). The bridge is also named Tiehong Bridge because it resembles the shape of a rainbow arching over the waves below. 

The iron chain bridge was built during the Qing Dynasty with wooden boards held onto the iron chains on the bottom as the flooring and on the both sides as fence to protect the walkers. 17 meters in length, people would be feeling a bit wiggling while on it, but it does send them back to the snapshots of history.
