As the only province without plains in China, southwest China’s Guizhou has achieved many world records by building over 20,000 bridges among its karst mountains.

The province now is known as “the museum of world bridges” due to the vast numbers, various types, and complex technologies of the bridges built over the decades.

Through bridge building, deep gorges are becoming thoroughfares. Mountainous Guizhou is becoming deeply integrated with the nation’s transportation network with local residents seeing an improved quality of life.
