Travel To China To Watch The Tunnel Through The Rocky Mountain By Hand For 5 Years

Guo Liang Tunnel through Tai Hengshan (Henan, China) is known as one of the most dangerous routes in the world, by people chiseled into the steep cliffs. This scary road is also nicknamed "The road mustn't make mistakes", due to its steep slope, many curves and only 4 m wide. Quach Luong Tunnel (Guoliang) was built to connect the village of Quach Luong located on top of Thai Hanh (Taihang) isolated from the outside world. In the past, the only way to get to the village was to climb through a valley with steep cliffs, then walk up a steep rocky stairway. Due to the difficult location, Quach Luong village is in danger of being abandoned, unless there is a path through the cliffs. In 1972, people decided to dig the tunnel themselves.

2 km long tunnel, 5 m high and 4 m wide, enough room for two vehicles to pass through.

The road surface and tunnel walls are very rugged by handcrafted people. This bumpy, steep and narrow tunnel is very slippery when it rains, Imaginechina / REX. Therefore, visitors should be extremely cautious when coming here in times of unfavorable weather. Chances of survival are not high if you fall off a cliff.
