Xiqiang Jiuhuang Mountain Footbridge is a beautiful suspension span strung between two cliffs that are located high up on the slope of a scenic mountain and cave area in Sichuan Province.

The Jiuhuang Mountain spot covers an area of more then 30 square kilometers loaded with cliffwalks, caves, forests and cultural sights.

The footbridge is unique for having a single main cable with cantilevered stringer cables that support what is probably the narrowest deck of any major tourist footbridge in China at only 1 meter.

The Wenchuan 2008 earthquake dislodged large boulders that partially destroyed the south end of the original footbridge before it was quickly rebuilt.
