The inhumane climb to Qiuchi Mountain with 38% ramps
Qiuchi Mountain is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 1.759m (5,770ft) above the sea level, located in the Xihe County of the prefecture-level city of Longnan, in the southeast of Gansu Province of China.
The road to the summit is totally unpaved but navigable by most of the passenger vehicles. It is not suitable for those who get dizzy, with dozens of hairpin turns, and combines thrills, excitement and beauty.
The road to the summit is brutally steep, hitting a 38% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. Starting at the paved S223, the road to the summit is 12.3 km (7.64 miles) long.
