Jiangjiehe is a ferry of Wujiang River. Wujiang River, a tributary of Yangtze River, is the longest river in Guizhou province, wandering through the province and dividing it into south and north. The current is swift with steep cliffs towering along its both sides. Jiangjiehe Ferry is located in Weng’an County (a small county of Southeast Guizhou), 50kilometers away from the center of the county. Wujiang River is 80 meters wide at the Jiangjiehe Ferry.
Jiangjiehe Scenic Spot is a beautiful and marvelous area around Jiangjiehe Ferry. It boasts various kinds of tourism resources, such as mountain, water, valley scenery, waterfalls, kasta caves and modern bridges. Jiangjiehe Bridge is the center of the scenic spot. It is the first long-span trussed combination arch bridge in the world. Praised highly as the First Bridge under Heaven, Jiangjiehe Bridge is 461 meters long, 13.4 meters wide and 120 meters high from Wujiang River. It connects Chuangqian Railway (from Sichuan to Guizhou) and Xiangqian Railway (from Hunan to Guizhou), which makes Weng’an (a small county of Southeast Guizhou) more open to the outside world.
