Okay, first of all let me apologize for my title because I don’t know if those base jumping spots in China are really best. Its because I only heard and read about them. I didn’t visit them personally and as you know I don’t mark as “best” until I personally visit the destination.
So, basically this post “Best base jumping Spots in China” is dedicated to one of my friend who is heading to China next month and she asked me to search and share about those Best spots for base jumping. Its my bad fate that i missed the opportunity to do all this extreme adventure myself but it alright !! I am not going to miss it next time and if you also have some planning to visit China then just memorize those spots, and if you are the one who knows more then us then please don’t be selfish, go ahead and share it with us.
So here we go!!
Best Base Jumping Spots in China
China offers variety of base jumping spots. Some of them are explored and some are not. Some are quite famous while some are not.
1. Aizhai Bridge, Hunan Province
The Aizhai Bridge is a suspension bridge on the G65 Baotou–Maoming Expressway near Jishou, Hunan, China…huh.. I wish i could really learn speaking chinese. Don’t forget to learn actual accent of “Jishou,” “”hunan” etc.
It has span of 1,146 metres that means 3,760 ft ( all I understood was that it is more than 1 kms long).
Later I came to know that it is seventh highest bridge in the world. (Now I found it pretty interesting). It reminded me that few years back I wrote something about on the Golden Gate bridge. I started thinking if it is more beautiful then Golden Gate bridge ?
The bridge and the associated road construction were projected to reduce the travel time between Jishou and Chadong from 4 hours to less than 1 hour.
In September 2012, the Aizhai Bridge was the site of an international BASE jumping festival that included more than 40 jumpers from 13 countries.
2. Balinghe Bridge, Guizhou Province
The Baling River Bridge (Baling He Bridge) is a suspension bridge in Guanling County in Guizhou Province of China. The bridge spans the Baling River Valley.
The bridge is part of the G60 Shanghai–Kunming Expressway between Kunming and Guiyang and reduced the travel time across the river valley from one hour to four minutes.
In July 2012 the Baling River Bridge was the location for the 2012 China Bridge Parachuting International Challenge.
30 BASE jumpers from 15 different countries participated in the event.
