The Ultimate Guide to Traveling the Huahu Cliff tunnel road
Huahu Cliff tunnel road is the name of an awe-inspiring route through remote areas located in Pingshun County, in the southeast of Shanxi province, China. It’s one of the famous Chinese tunnel roads.
Tucked away in the Taihang Mountains, the challenging road, also known as Jinyu No.56 Highway, is totally paved. It’s a hidden gem. Built on a high cliff, the road is 22km (13.67 miles) long, running from Pingshun to Linzhou. Along the way you’ll drive through 7 narrow tunnels. Be aware of rockslides and do not drive the road on rainy seasons.
Dug out by hand, the road was constructed in the 1980s. The road is extremely scary, with a drop of more than 1000 meters and affording stunning views. The road has become a tourist site in its own right thanks to its beautiful views. It’s not an easy drive, with dangerous, steep and countless turns.
