Nujiang River Road

Travelling the defiant Nujiang River Road

Located in the Nujiang Lisu Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan province, China, Nujiang River Road is one of the most scenic&challenging roads in the world. It is a dangerous road built on cliff, completely by hand work.

The road follows the Nujiang River, also known as Salween River. It’s 27.7 km long. The road starts heading north from 010 Country road, over a tiny bridge. This road tests the skill, and courage, of any driver. It’s definitely not for anyone suffering from vertigo or a fear of landslides.   

The road was recently asphalted. The last part of the road is closed to foreigner visitors. Your wheels will be astounded at the wonderful views of the mountains spread out before you! They are terrible for drivers who are prone to vertigo. Flooding can washaway the entire road surface. Needless to say, any vehicle attempting to cross the road at that time would be easily swept away.
