A 1,526-meter-long road was built along the cliffs to connect isolated Shenlongwan to the outside. The construction of this miraculous road lasted for 15 years from 1985 to 2000, and was built purely by villagers of Shenlongwan. Thanks to this road, villagers here now cast off poverty by developing tourism.[Photo/Xinhua]
