Immortal Bridge, China

From series “Incredible Natural Arches Built by Water and Wind”
On the top of Tai Shan (Mount Tai) in China there is the so-called Immortal Bridge - a beautiful and remarkable arch formation. The arch is made up of single huge rolling stones, which once fell between the rocks and remained stuck between them. At first glance it is difficult to believe that a man has nothing to do with the creation of this amazing bridge. And it seems that the bridge can collapse at any time and fall into the abyss. In reality, the stones have been in the unchanging position for several million years.

Immortal Bridge, China The arch was formed during the ice age, according to rough estimates of scientists. Local residents connect many legends and folk beliefs with the Immortal Bridge. According to one of them, a man who dares to cross the bridge, will gain immortality. For many years, the arch is a cult place to which a large number of pilgrims come. They regard the Immortal Bridge as a symbol of rebirth and eternal life.

Tourists who will take an excursion to one of China's most remarkable natural sights, have a chance to personally check the magical power of this place. Despite the fact that the arch looks very fragile and shaky, many travellers dare to pass through its stone steps. Even if you do not become immortal afterwards, a rush of emotions and adrenaline is guaranteed. The best time to visit the Immortal Bridge will be in summer. At this time of the year, the surrounding mountain landscapes are simply irresistible. Next - Arco Naturale
