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.

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.

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.

You have to visit it during the night it's more interesting (illuminated),it's near the night market , so it's more lively at night, and the yellow river too.
