The rare stone moon, the first Nujiang River bend, the mysterious group bath, the idyllic Bingzhongluo town... These are travel highlights in the beautiful Nujiang Lisu Autonomous Prefecture, a fascinating place in northwest Yunnan.
However, the socio-economic development of the prefecture has long been hampered by poor infrastructure like roads, making it impossible for tourists to visit Nujiang with ease.
Here comes the good news: The beautiful Nujiang road will be completed and open to traffic by the end of November 2019. And people there have sent their greetings: "Welcome to Nujiang!"
Basics of the widened road
The reconstruction and widening of the beautiful Nujiang road kicked off in August 2017. Starting from the Liuku town in Lushui City, the road passes through Fugong County and ends in the Bingzhongluo town, Gongshan Dulong Autonomous County.
The 286.6-kilometers Nujiang road is designed at a speed of 40 km/h, with an estimated investment of 12.185 billion yuan. Trial operation of the Fugong-Lushui section was finished on September 26, bringing us closer to Nujiang.
Highlights of the newly expanded beautiful road are as follows.
Slow-moving lanes are built along the Nujiang beautiful road for riders, walkers and sightseers. The road is also equipped with running tracks, hot springs and zip-lines.
The road will be fully covered by fiber-optic broad band, with the 4G network and mobile hotspots readily available! Pictures taken can be instantly shared with your online friends.
Special plants will be planted along this beautiful road, including cherry blossoms, peach trees, cotton trees, flame trees, and bougainvillea. Belvederes will be set up for tourists.
All these aim to offer visitors a wonderful tour in Nujiang prefecture.
