Cliffside tunnel and white-knuckle ride only link to remote Chinese village
Imagine running out of fuel in the tunnel
yeah I have one
the scenery is to die for
China comes with ideas other countries would never
They could have drilled a wide tunnel through the middle of the mountains with air pockets to allow air to go in
@Matthew L nah the Chinese are not like the americans!! In the states this would of been a 10 year multi billion dollar project!!
Super Duper Noobie
Nature: Gee I hope no natural disaster will happen
How did they build that?
this was not a govt. project .. people did it themselves
This is how roads in the USA began ... NO GOVERNMENT help ... most of the dams in the USA were built by the people NOT the go nment
hand ... villagers build it by their own
i wonder if the rock cracks and falls

1 or 2 dead, they still hv 1 billion to go
That stone is very easy to chisel, so the could do it without any machinery. Smart to cut tunnel on the side as it protects from rock slides.
I dont dare to ride at this road eventhough u offer me 1 million dollar..Its too risky..Anything can happen
I would ride for you!!!
The villagers should move out of the mountain village and live in the city.
Or they could continue doing what makes them happy.....
how about the car broke in the middle
China made cars never break down, ok. They just run out of petrol
continue on foot...or hitchhike
my wife would N E V E R let me take her on that road
As I understand this was first made by the village alone .. no go nment hel
The go nment provided explosive and part of the fund but built totally by the villagers themselves. Some villagers never went more than 7km outside of their village in the entire of their lives before this road was built in the early 2000s. This remote place is called Shibanhe village in Guizhou prov.
@InfoChina Did you know that chinese workers built something like that in the USA ??
1860's to1870's for the Central Pacific Railroad (wiki)
@Stephen Mortimer Yes, I know. They had made a great contribution to the US infrastructure but the US and Canada gov't didn't treat them well if you know what I meant.
I'm not impressed.
