Yongren, Yunnan, China
1,155 feet high / 352 meters high
3,018 foot span / 920 meter span
The 3rd largest and highest suspension bridge span in Yunnan Province, the sleek and beautiful Yongren Bridge (formerly Jiangdihe Bridge), soars more then 350 meters above a remote, V-shaped canyon on the S35 Yongren to Dayao Expressway. Only the Jin'an and Puli Bridges have higher suspension decks in Yunnan Province. Yongren's 920 meter tower to tower span length is only exceeded by Jin'an and Longjiang suspension bridges within Yunnan.
Yunnan Province was the first to use a thin, steel box deck on a high suspension bridge within China as seen on the 2015 Puli and 2016 Longjiang Bridges. The 2023 Jiangdihe Bridge continues this steel box tradition making for a more streamlined profile that seems to defy gravity as the deck floats in the air above the vast space of the Jiangdi River gorge.
The total length of the Yongren Bridge is 1,668 meters including approach spans with towers 192.7 and 107.7 meters tall.
On the south side of the Yongren Bridge there is a tourist overlook and parking area.
