The giant Wulipo Bridge is one of those viaducts that really likes to show off its legs in a way that few spans can do. Stretching across a wide valley in Shaanxi Province, the bridge is composed of four main spans of 160 meters. But its those piers that demand to be noticed with the tallest rising 153 meters along with 2 more that exceed 100 meters. With a total length of 1,238 meters, this is among the 20 largest viaducts on earth.

The viaduct is the highest of 3 giant Baohan Expressway bridges that skirt along the Fengjiashan reservoir about 10 kilometers east of Qianyang in Shaanxi Province. The other two are Jiankou and Nancun Bridges.
