Yalu River Broken Bridge

Overview

Yalu River is the river of northeastern Asia that forms the northwestern boundary between North Korea and the Northeast region of China. The Yalu River flows through 795 kilometers of Northeastern China and joins the sea in Dandong.

 

The Yalu River Broken Bridge, started in 1909 and completed in 1911, was built to connect Dandong and its North Korean neighbor city Yeng Byen. 944.2 meters long and 11 meters wide, the broken bridge was ever the largest bridge spanning the Yalu River.

 

In June 1950, the Korean War broke out. The bridge was bombed by the US military during the war and was never repaired. It remains broken as a reminder of the war, abruptly stopping in the middle of the Yalu River. The bridge carries a profound meaning for the Chinese and is now a government-sanctioned heritage site.

 

Every year, tourists from the world come to this tourist site to gaze into secretive North Koreans. For a better view of North Korean borderlands, some tourists will take a boat ride along the Yalu river to view the opposite side more clearly.
