This performs its primary function perfectly, spanning the Yellow River from one bank to the other. Be well aware that for long periods of the year there's little or no water in the river.

This was a 2013 review and while a remarkable engineering achievement at the time and resources went it was built, I would not stop the bus for a long photo opportunity and head to the mountain park north of the city, looking down on the city, river and bridge.

This bridge offers a wide and long view of the famous Yellow River, as well as of some interesting parts of the city. As you cross it, you can walk along an interesting walkway and see some monuments, small gardehs, and other sightseeings on one side. On the other side, you´ll view a crowded road and part of the mountains.... More

The Yellow River iron bridge is a pedestrian bridge over the Yellow River. It is filled with hawkers selling all manner of wares, from hot sweet potatoes and bulk potato chips to artisans who create sculptures out of wire. The feeling one gets as you walk across is that you are experiencing a bit of authentic China, as couples, children... More

Great bridge for its historical significance. Best time to see is at dusk. Did not get a chance to walk on it since I was more interested in taking photos with the lights on.

Lanzhou unfortunately suffers from a lack of tourism features but even moreso tourism marketing. The destination has quite some interesting spots like this one marketed far too little. Iron Bridge is one of the few mass tourism spots in the City especially in the months from June through to September.

Current name : Zhong Shan Bridge. Amazing bridge built in the 19th Century and still used for pedestrians and cyclists. A good place to view the Yellow River and the night lights on both sides of the river. The Yellow River Bridges museum which is on the northern side of the bridge reviews the history as well as the development... More

If your headed to the river this is a great vantage point to see it and the "beach". I wouldn't make a special trip.

I don't get why it is an attraction because it is plainly an iron bridge across the Yellow River. You can view it from the top of Baita Mountain (白塔山, White Pagoda Hill).

If you visite lanzhou , you can't avoid the iron bridge, it's a very happy place, especially in the evening, many people dance and walk across the bridge, photographers ,you can take a photo, it's not so expensive.
