The awesome Lanying Cliff Road carved out of the mountains
Located in Wuxi County, in Southwest China, the Lanying Cliff Road is an awesome path carved out of the mountains. It’s one of the famous Chinese tunnel roads.
Located on the southern slopes of the central Daba Mountains, the extremely narrow road is totally paved. It’s the only transportation route connecting Lanying village to the outside world. Previously, residents had to travel almost an entire day to exit the mountainous area. The road is steep, hitting a 22.9% through some of the sections.
The road is 1.2km (0.745 miles) long down from the side of the cliff. It was constructed by villagers in 2001 who hammered out a road along a cliff to better connection of the town to the outside world. The road is extremely scary, with a drop of more than 1000 meters. The drive offers great views over Lanying Grand Canyon, the deepest canyon in Chongqing.
