Huilong-Hanging Tunnel

Huilong-Hanging Tunnel is an epic road in Henan Province

Located in the prefecture-level city of Xinxiang, in Henan Province, China, the Huilong-Hanging Tunnel is a very challenging road. Be careful: this road is not for the sissies. It’s one of the famous Chinese tunnel roads.

Nestled in the Southern Taihang Mountains, the road is also known as Huilong Wall Road,Huilong Wall-Mounted Highway and Huilong Hangbi Highway. It’s totally paved but very narrow. The winding road is 8km long on a steep cliff. It connects the provinces of Henan and Shanxi through the southern Taihang Mountains.

The most challenging section of the road is a 1-kilometer-long tunnel with a S shape, known as Huilong Tunnel. It’s 8 meters wide only. The construction of the tunnel began in November 1997 and was completed on January 10, 2002.
