21 hairpin bends on the Zig-zag road of Sichuan
Located in SW China's Sichuan, a challenging mountain road features 21-consecutive-hairpin-bends built on a cliff.
Tucked away in the Bashan Grand Canyon, in the northeast of Sichuan Province, the road is mostly paved. It’s 1.8km (1.11 miles) long, and extremely steep, with 21-consecutive-hairpin-turns. The road is narrow and sharp, and it is often necessary to reverse the car and move slowly when turning.
Embedded on a cliff, the road is extremely steep, climbing up from 646m (2,119ft) above the sea level, to 1.014m (3,326ft) asl. The elevation gain is 368 meters. The average gradient is 20.44%.
