Soaring 565 meters above Beipanjiang Grand Valley, between Guizhou and Yunnan provinces, Beipanjiang Bridge is renowned as the world's highest bridge. A group of photos recently taken were released on Sept 13 to show its splendid views.

With a height equivalent to a 200-storey building, the structure is part of a highway linking Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, and Ruili city in Guizhou's neighboring Yunnan province. The bridge cuts travel time between Liupanshui in Guizhou and Xuanwei in Yunnan province from five hours to less than two.

The construction of the 1,341-meter-long cable-stayed suspension bridge started in 2013, costing about 1 billion yuan (about $150 million). Following three year's construction, it opened to the public in December last year.
