What people are saying:

Located in southwestern Zhejiang, Qingyuan is the hometown of Chinese covered bridges. According to the Qingyuan County Chronicles published in the third year of Guangxu, over 230 covered bridges have been built in Qingyuan County since the Song and Yuan Dynasties. There are also 130 existing covered bridges since the Song Dynasty. The remaining ones include Lanxi Bridge, Shuangmen Bridge, Buchan Bridge, Rulong Bridge and so on. Although they have been baptized over the years, most of them are well preserved. They are embedded in the mountains and straddling the valleys of streams and valleys. They are called ancient Chinese A gem of bridge culture. Among them, the Lanxi Bridge should be a representative of the existing bridges in Qingyuan. Address Transportation: Lanxi Bridge, located next to the Xiyang Hall of Xiyang Village, Wudapu Township, Qingyuan County, Zhejiang Province, just beside the highway, 12 kilometers northeast of Daji Ancient Village, Qingyuan, you can visit the Daji Ancient Village together. It is more convenient to drive by car. Stop by the roadside. Ticket price: open all day, no tickets. Overall introduction: Lanxi Bridge was built in the second year of Wanli in the Ming Dynasty (1574) and rebuilt in the 59th year of Emperor Qianlong in the Qing Dynasty (1794). It has a history of more than 400 years. The original site is in the downstream "Lanxi Bridge Reservoir" water storage area, 1984 Relocated to the place where it is currently located in the same year, Lanxi Bridge is a large-span wooden arch outrigger wooden arch bridge, and it is also the largest existing single-span wooden arched bridge in the Ming Dynasty in the country. It cleverly connects the Western Temple and the road. . The bridge is 48.12 meters in length, 5 meters in width, and 9.4 meters in height from the river bed. The arch has a figure eight shape. Its wooden arch is the most scientifically stressed, and its technical construction is unique among similar covered bridges. Its long-span arch design is very similar to the Hongqiao in the famous Northern Song Dynasty painter Zhang Zeduan's "Along the River at Qingming Festival". It is an important physical example for the study of ancient long-span bridges and has high scientific, artistic value and cultural connotation. There is a passage in the middle of the bridge. There are benches on both sides for visitors to sit and rest. All the scales on both sides of the bridge are covered with weatherboards, which are divided into upper, middle and lower floors. There are also small geometric windows on the bridge. Above the covered bridge, I deeply feel that the covered bridge is not only simple and elegant, but also very practical. Although the bridge body of Lanxi Bridge is still very stable after more than 400 years of trials and hardships, I have to admire the original design and builder's ingenuity. At present, Lanxi Bridge does not accept tickets. There is a shiitake temple nearby. You can visit the nearby Daji Ancient Village and Baishanzu National Forest Park.
