A road with hundreds of turns to Fengxue Pass

Fengxue Yakou is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.157m (10,357ft) above the sea level, located in Lushui county, in the Nujiang Prefecture, western Yunnan Province of China.

Fengxue Pass

Set high in the Gaoligong mountain range, not far from the Burmese border, the road to the summit is paved with cobblestone. It’s called S327. The pass is 81.1 km (50.39 miles) long, running west-east from Pianmazhen to Luzhangzhen. The road has great military importance since ancient times.

If you are fearful of curvy roads this is the last place on earth you’ll want to be: the pass has more than 300 turns. To drive the road without stopping will take most people between 3 and 4 hours. When the snow falls - which it does in the winter – things get tough and slippery.
