The journey is the destination along the Yunguichuan Cliff sky road

Tucked away in Wuxi County, in People's Republic of China, the defiant Yunguichuan Cliff sky road is a marvel of engineering dug out by hand.

Yunguichuan Cliff sky road

Set high in the Daba Mountains, this hanging wall road is 12.7 km (7.89 miles) long, running from Changhongcun to Lanyingcun. Ideal time to travel is daylight. Not advised night drive.

Located near the scenic Lanying Cliff Road, a handful of local villagers built the road to be hewn by hand in the 2000’s. The road was paved with concrete. The route is dangerous. Not recommended to newbies. Along the way you’ll have to deal with a drop of more than 1000 meters and affording stunning views.
