The Ultimate Guide to Traveling the Chishui Cliff road
Chishui Cliff road is the name of a very challenging drive, located 200 meters above the Chishui River canyon in Xuyong County, in the southeast of Sichuan Province, China. It’s one of the famous Chinese tunnel roads.
Tucked away in the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau, within the Wumeng Mountains, the road was built by the villagers of Chahecun to cross to the other province, along the edge of the Chishuihe River canyon. Its construction took 10 years, built with hammers, picks and other hand tools. Once finished, to reach Yunnan province, they had to drive the cliff road and then taking a boat to cross the river.
On Jan 21, 2020, the road was completed with the construction of a new bridge, the Jiming Three Provinces Bridge, which shortened the trip several hours. The new bridge is 558 feet (170 meters) high. The cliff road is available for pedestrians and bikers only.
