Guoliang Tunnel Road, China

From series “Most Spectacular Mountain Roads”
Year: 1977. Lenght: 1 200 m. Width: 4 m.

Guolyan road tunnel built in the Tai Hang Shang Mountains is the real China’s national attraction. The history of its construction is unusual and very interesting. The tunnel is a part of a complex serpentine rock. 13 ordinary locals worked at its construction. Many of those who participated in the construction of the road died in accidents. The official opening of the new section of the mountain highway was held on May 1, 1977.

Guoliang Tunnel Road, China The length of the tunnel is about 1200 meters, while the length of the mountain route is much longer. The average width of the road is just 4 meters which makes it extremely difficult and dangerous to overcome. Mountain tunnel is partially opened. To provide illumination on the pathway the huge holes were made in the rocks. Currently, the mountain road with the tunnel is the only way to ensure access to the mountain village of Guolyan. A few decades ago local residents had to travel a long and tedious journey on foot.

These were the villagers who built a mountain road, which in a few years has become a landmark of world importance. Driving on the difficult track, when massive stones crumble from its sides into the abyss becomes a matter of honour for many motorists. Some tourists prefer walking through the man-made mountain tunnel on foot. It is important to note that originally it was a lane. Nowadays some parts of the tunnel allow two oncoming cars to pass each other. Next - Trollstigen
