Tongtian Avenue on Tianmen Mountain, China

bdmetronews Desk ॥ Hairpin bends, all 99 of them, make driving along Tongtian Avenue something of a hair-raising adventure, even for the most experienced motorist.

The wildly curvy route is also called the Avenue Leading to the Sky, and for nearly seven miles it snakes towards the top of Tianmen Mountain in China’s Hunan Province.
There’s an alternative way up, but it’s not much better for the faint of heart: What’s considered the world’s longest high-mountain cable car system ascends over 3,900ft. The entire Tianmen Mountain experience seems to be made for those with nerves of steel – glass walkways hug high cliffs, and a 999-step stairway leads to an enormous natural arch near the mountain’s summit.
