The fifth highest cable stayed span on earth, the Liuchonghe Bridge is part of a new highway between Zhijin and Qianxi in Guizhou Province. The expressway extends north to Renhuai and beyond. The Liuchonghe River is a tributary of the Wujiang River which has more high bridges across it then any other river in the world except for the Beipanjiang River.

The Northeast side of the Liuchong canyon contains a nearly vertical cliff wall over 150 meters high. The two towers measure 190 and 157.6 meters tall. The spectacular location is nearly picture perfect with few roads or buildings anywhere in the area.
