A 10.86-meter long highway with 22 twists and turns in Liangya Village, Lingyang Town, Cili County, Zhangjiajie City welcomed numerous travelers on April 8. It is built in a mountain and seems like a winding ribbon when seen from above.

Liangya Village is over 700 meters in altitude. It is said that there is a huge mountain pass in the village, on the edge of which is a stone in the shape of a cock. The stone would “crow” in the early morning for three times and the day breaks, so the village is called “Liangya”, which means that the pass brings light to the village.

The highway has been constructed with the great support of transportation departments at different levels, making it more convenient for villagers to go to other places. It not only allows villagers to transport their agricultural and sideline products to the market, but attracts many tourists who enjoy travelling in rural areas.
