No. 1 Bridge under Heaven
The No. 1 Bridge under Heaven, also known as Bridge Across the Sky, Bridge Under the Sun or Tianxia Diyi Qiao, can be found in the Wulingyuan Scenery of the Hunan province in China.
The bridge, a naturally occurring stone arch, is approximately 360 metres above ground and 40 metres long. There are paths up to it and across but I think I'd prefer to admire from a safe distance. I have no head for heights.
It's easy to see why this whole area of spectacular scenery is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Not only is it scenically amazing, but it's also home to a number of endangered species.
