7. Baoxie Plank Road


Baoxie Plank extends all the way from Bao Velly of Hanzhong City to Xie Velley in Mei County, hence the name “Baoxie Plank Road.” The plank road stretches across the Qinling Mountains and connects the Chinese provinces of Shaanxi and Sichuan. It is a very ancient plank road with a total length of 250 km, consisting of wooden planks laid on stone beams inserted into holes dug on the sides of cliffs. The plank road used to be an important “military road” and “trade route.” The products in Sichuan were transported to Shaanxi through it.  Baoxi Plank was built deeply in Qinling Mountains, due to the high mountains, dense forests and deep valleys, it was extremely difficult to build the plank road. The construction began before the invention of gunpowder, so people had to use fire to burn the rock and splash water to break it. Baoxie Plank Road also has the oldest man-made tunnel in the world.
