Longteng Broken Bridge｜Introduction of Scenic Spots
The Longteng Broken Bridge is located in Longteng Village, Sanyi Township, Miaoli County. Because it used to be called "Yutengping", it is also called Yutengping Broken Bridge. The Longteng Broken Bridge has a long history. It was built during the Japanese Occupation Period. The entire bridge was made of glutinous rice, and the width of each brick was different.The bridge did not use any steel or cement, so its anti-seismic ability was relatively poor. After the Guandaoshan earthquake with a scale of 7.3 occurred in 1935, Yutengping Bridge became the later Yutengping Broken Bridge.
#North Broken Bridge
The Longteng Broken Bridge is divided into the North Broken Bridge and the South Broken Bridge. Everyone’s impression of the Longteng Broken Bridge is the North Broken Bridge. There are six bridge piers. It looks spectacular, and I was shocked by the previous bridge building craftsmanship! The front of the broken bridge happens to be a road, and then there is a small square inside, which is better for taking pictures, and you can sit down and take a rest.
#South Broken Bridge
The South Broken Bridge needs to go down from the trail next to the North Broken Bridge, passing Longteng River on the way, and walking for about five to ten minutes., Are easy and easy to walk trails, and you will also see the Longteng Iron Bridge built later to replace the Longteng Broken Bridge. I met a guide on the scene explaining the previous story, and it was more realistic! There are four bridge piers on the South Broken Bridge. Compared with the red bricks of the North Broken Bridge, the piers of the South Broken Bridge are mostly entangled by tenacious plants, showing a deep historical trace.
After returning from the South Broken Bridge, we originally wanted to take the old mountain line railway bike, but because we couldn't catch the last train at Longteng Station, we went back in defeat. But let's share some information on the rides in this section of Longteng Station.
