If you’re an automotive enthusiasts or just like to get behind the wheel and drive, there are several roads you just have to experience for yourself before you die. On that list are the usuals like the Pacific Coast Highway, the Nürburgring and the Stelvio Pass. But here’s a new one to add to that list, the Tianmen Mountain Winding Road in China.

As just under 7 miles in length and with a total of 99 turns, the narrow road has been chiseled out of the landscape, rising 1,100 meters (3,600 feet).

Nicknamed “Heaven-Linking Avenue”, just toss us the keys to a Porsche GT3 at the bottom and by the top we’re sure to be in heaven.

    I’m sadly past my marathon running years, but this would be an awesome training run — up and down, 14 miles. I’ve always been a hill runner, but this is the ultimate!

    I hope to be able to cycle it up tomorrow. However there is only little information about how to get there precisely. I can see the mountain and it’s just waiting for me to get up there…
