The Old Kunyi Road is one of the most challenging drives in China. It features 26 hairpin turns in just over 2.1 km long. It’s one of the famous hairpinned roads in the world.

Located in Yiliang County of Yunnan Province, this unpaved road is really awesome. There is a sharp turn every few meters. It’s one of most crooked roads in the country. Many locals even do not know it. The road is pretty steep. It’s 2.1km long and the elevation gain is 139m. The average gradient is 6.6%.
