The surrounding scenery is stunning but take your eyes off the road for a second, and you’re on the fast way down to the bottom of the valley. It is built with many interwinding twists & turns and the ride is most certainly not for the faint-hearted.

The highest peak of the mountains is 1262.5 meters above sea level. Around it is rolling ridges and peaks and high picturesque rocks. On the top of the mountains, one can have a bird ‘ s eye view of numberless inter winding hills and deep valleys of the Wulingyuan area as well as downpouring waterfalls and lofty old pines in drifting mists and clouds.
