Takáto zápcha na ceste nie je bohviečo!

Čínske úzke horské cestičky, kde sa auto ľahko ani nepohne… Hlavne vyzerajú nebezpečne!







Pic shows: Tourists in the cliff-side road during May Day holidays. Hundreds of tourists found themselves stranded in traffic on a cliff-side motorway leading to one of the country’s most remote villages during the three-day May Day holidays. Some visitors had packed onto tour buses while others drove their own vehicles to reach the Taihang Mountains in central China’s Henan Province, where the solitary mountain road offers access to the remote Guoliang Village. With few places that traffic can pass, it meant the narrow road quickly became gridlocked with vehicles unable to go up, or down. The road, completed almost four decades ago, still remains the only way in and out of the village, which has now become one of the country’s must-see destinations for photographers hoping to capture a dramatic view. However, the road was not always meant for tourism. Before the construction of the road, residents accessed the village via a steep staircase known as the "sky ladder", or "tianti" in Chinese, named for its elevation and narrowness. But after village elders decided that they wanted to connect with the "outside world", and also make easier for those who wished to visit, construction began in 1972 for what would eventually become one of the country’s most spectacular driveable roads. The 3m-wide, 4.5m-high, single-lane road was carved out on the side of the canyon by 13 strong villagers, who completed the feat in just five years for a grand opening in 1977. The mile-long road is now wide enough for modern-day vehicles to pass through side-by-side, but it means traffic is slow. Alternatively, visitors can hike up the road instead to reach Guoliang Village, which is known for being built entirely out of stone. (ends)
