Najiehe Railway Bridge, China
The proud owner of the Highest Railway Bridge in the World badge, the Najiehe Railway Bridge in central Guizhou in China boasts a railway located 305 metres above ground. It also boasts the title of being one of the longest arch bridges, since its span reaches 352 meres.
At 802 metres long, this incredible bridge stretches between Zhijin in Bijie and Qingzhen in Guiyang crossing majestically over the Sancha River (which is also known as the Wu River). Made from steel, it was opened very recently in 2016 and was given the Guinness World Record for being the highest railway bridge.
With stunning views of the surrounding lush green landscape, this bridge, which is painted a bright pillar box red, allows for breath taking views as tourists, locals and commuters alike travel in comfort in the rail coaches. We defy anyone to fall asleep on this journey and miss out on all the fun. Whilst there might not be the opportunity to stop and peer over the side like some of the world’s other spectacular bridges, this one provides an element of danger from the safety of the train.
