The Fairy Walking Bridge connects two rocks at an altitude of 1320 meters above sea level. Until 1987, the local residents had to walk over the abyss along the old hanging path, many of them fell down - it hence the name "bridge of the immortals". The current bridge construction is safe for pedestrians, but the former ill fame of this place has remained.
