The Most Dangerous Road in the World
You talk about twists and turns, believe me this big crazy road is going to be right up there.Big Gate Road or the Avenue Toward Heaven Tianmenshan,Zhangjiajie in the Hunan province of China goes from a staggering 200 meters below to 1300 meters above sea level.The highest point is 1300m(4.265) above sea level, the lowest point is 200m(656 ft). It is little wonder the road which started in 1998 took eight years to be complete.It’s driveaway doesn’t seem to be for fainted hearted.Coming to which the road has exactly 99 turns which means they got lazy or the engineer mom wasn’t a Tiger Mom.The fact is that nine is a lucky number in China as it symbolizes heaven and has nine palaces.Well after reading all this there are chances that you may find the road a bit scary for you,so they have built a cable car for us.It goes from Zhangjiajie City to top of Tiamen Mountain, which apparently sums up to about 7455 metres in length also making the longest in the world.Sounds like out of the frying pan and in to the fire.
So if you want sometime visit China try to come and explore the beauty of Big Gate Road.Take my word the experience will be worth it!
