  • Luding bridge of Chinese companions heard even in childhood. They remember primary school textbooks about 22 soldiers of the Red Army of China, who first stormed the bridge year May 29, 1935, during the great Trek. Then it was one of the most important battles between the Red Army and the Kuomintang forces under the leadership of Chiang Kai-shek. I, like many foreigners, first saw the name of this object when reading the program, proposed by the US travel agency. I tried to learn more. I think that pass over the bridge, then touch the Luding history. Bridge connects not only the river but also the different epochs. Iron, hanging chain bridge, is located in Džagsamka County, garzê Tibetan Autonomous County, Sichuan province. From the West, just above the bridge at Mount built Tanga Yes Temple, with the upper floors with panoramic views of the River, the city and the bridge. Luding bridge was built in 1705-1706, with the Qing dynasty Dadu River (Dadu he) flowing from North to South in uzoj Valley. Luding bridge consists of three components: two pavilions on the banks and the main component of the 13 iron chains: chains, 9 which laid paving from boards and two chains on each side of the bridge served as fencing and railings. Each chain weighs 2.5 tons and fixed on the giant stone pillars on both sides of the river. Length of 100 meters, the width of the bridge 2. 7 meters. Since the Qing dynasty it was an important strategic site on the trading path to China transported horses, wool, other animal products, and in Tibet brought tea, silk and other goods. Bridge engineering construction firm regularly serves people three hundred years! 28-29 May 1935 during the great Trek, the Chinese Red Army was supposed to depart on the river Dadu to the North. May 25, 1935 Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai and others were in the village of Mosi (near National Park Hajlajgou). At a meeting held in the House near a Catholic Church (now a Museum), they decided to take station near the bridge. It was necessary to cross the river. Enemies of the disassembled bridge (boards were removed), leaving only the iron chain. Soldiers used rifles and pieces of wood to move on them. The first passed 22 winterhoof. They overpowered Government troops homindanivskyh Regiment with machine guns, and opened the way for the marchers. The fight was important for the future of the Red Army and the Communist movement in China. "Thirteen chains broke up on the roads of the Republic". At present, the construction of a new expressway from the city to build a new of Kangding Jaan bridge Expressway Yaye Luding Bridge. It will be held at 2 km. upstream from the dam and Lûding will be one of the highest in the world-280 m (920 ft) above the surface of the reservoir. The main span of the bridge will be 1100 m (3600 ft), making it one of the longest ever built. New Bridge opens in the year 2017. It is difficult to see the old highway bridge. Be sure to roll down to the River, go over the boards of the old bridge over the rocker luding, turbulent River. Unforgettable impressions!

  • 先有大渡河,再有泸定桥。有了大渡河的汹涌波涛,泸定桥变得愈加的沉稳和波澜不惊。在这里,感受到脚下如同万马奔腾的大渡河,想起了小学课本里的飞夺泸定桥。只有亲自来体验,才能感受到,这惊心动魄。在桥上一定要注意安全,不注意就会因为河水的奔流而眩晕不适。
