It is just like a jade belt around, curved and be closely linked, layer upon layer.
It is known as the "the first highway wonder in the world". However, this road is not open to public traffic (only for some special competitions, such as cycle races).
Tourists can take the Tianmen Mountain Cableway from Zhangjiajie Railway Station to enjoy the beautiful scenery and get a bird's eye view of the road for 258 Yuan.
