[InKunming--Attractions]  Yunlong Bridge (云龙桥), also called Tiesuo Bridge (chain bridge) by local people in Dali, was the first bridge connecting Dali and the west on Southern Inland Silk Road in Han Dynasty.

It crosses over Yangbi River (漾濞江), connecting Xiguan city, the capital of Dali prefecture in the east and Yongping county in the west in Dali.

Southern Inland Silk Road in China contains three parts, namely the Lingguan road(灵光道), Wuchi road(五尺道), and Yongchang road(永昌道). The bridge belongs to the last part of Southern Inland Silk Road, on the Yongchang road.
