Shiqiao Bridge-China

Shiqiao Bridge-China

Guizhou Province. Shiqiao Village is one of the few remaining villages where the minority Miao people continue to produce and sell traditional hand made paper and products. These are usually made in caves and close to one on these is this large natural bridge. The bridge spans a small tributary of the Nan Gao River and is about 14 miles south of the city of Kaili in the east of the province. Although it does not appear so from the photograph it is quite large.

The bridge has a span of 36,2 m and a height of 24 m.
