After climbing for about half an hour, you can take the cable car to the top of the mountain, and you will visit Hongya Valley at the top of the mountain.
Hongya Valley Scenic Area is located in Banshan Village, and the Landscape Avenue along the way has been opened to the public. Covering an area of 12 square kilometers and a tourist route of 25 kilometers, Hongya Valley integrates natural sightseeing, leisure and vacation, folk culture, and eco-tourism, which will surely bring different feelings and experiences to tourists! There are more than 50 scenic spots in Hongya Valley, including the most popular glass bridge.
Located at the highest altitude at Hongya Valley, Hongya Valley Glass Bridge is the longest suspended glass cable bridge in Asia. It was built between two beautiful peaks, with a total length of 488 meters (currently ranking first in the world among similar bridges), a width of 4 meters, and a clear width of 2 meters in the pedestrian area. The bridge adopts a suspension cable structure, and the bridge deck is all made of aviation laminated glass, with a thickness of 4 cm and a strong bearing capacity. The suspension bridge is designed to resist strong winds of magnitude 12 and earthquakes of magnitude 6. The vertical drop between the bridge deck and the ground is about 218 meters, which is equivalent to the height of 66 stories. The maximum bearing capacity of the bridge is designed to accommodate 2,000 people at the same time. Unlike other bridges that have slings above the bridge, the ropes of this bridge are located below the bridge deck and directly connected to the ground. On the high-altitude cliff above 1,000 meters above sea level, stepping on the glass plank road and listening to the howling mountain wind, you can not only enjoy the beautiful scenery in the mountains but also experience the thrilling excitement of walking in the clouds!
After visiting the scenic area, you can spend some time in the Hongya Ancient Town at the foot of the mountain, where you can enjoy your lunch. Hongya Ancient Town is the largest Taihang Residential Architecture Museum in North China, which is called “a valley with mountains and rivers and streets full of stories”. Your trip to Hongya will not only be a leisure and vacation trip but also a journey to enjoy architectural totem culture.
