Awesome place for relaxation & seeing some of the natural and man-made wonders of this great world

After looking at the amazingly awesome Guoliang cliff hanging highway and touring Guoliang Village, I went on to look at other parts of Wanxin Mountain. First, I’m glad I had packed a few warm sweaters. It gets cold up here. There was snow and ice hanging in the Nanping Scenic Spot. For food, it is very organic here, tasty, and inexpensive. This is a hikers paradise.

We visited three of the villages, the residents of which use the tunnel on a daily basis as their major connection to the rest of the world.

As I noted in my review of the tunnel road, it is extremely magnificent and shows what people can do when they are determined. This has long-term benefits for many generations to come.

In 1971, Guoliang Villagers, with little engineering knowledge, decided to build a tunnel road through the mountains to get better connected to the outside world. It ended up taking five years to complete, and some of the workers died in the process. It currently ranks as the ninth largest man-dug tunnel through steep, rugged cliffs, and is located in the Taihang Mountains of China. This two-way traffic cliff promenade is approximately five metres in height, and has a width of four metres. It was built by thirteen local villagers, without the assistance of electrical power and machinery. Their main tools were hammers, steel bars, and explosives.

Tunnel itself is worth the trip!

We spent 3 days in the area and I enjoyed hiking around the mountains and visiting the small village. The tunnel was the highlight of the trip and it's history is an impressive feat of the local villagers!

Worth a trip

We went in June and though it was still a bit chilly we enjoyed our time in this village. This is where the famous Guoliang tunnel was carved out by the villagers in the 70s to make it easier to get to, and the tunnel is worth the trip! Make sure to do some of the slides down the mountains, hang gliding and hiking around the beautiful mountains.
