Yingxiu--the foot of the Mt. Balang (East foot):
The road leading to Xiaojin is fairly new concrete, there are very few people and car on the road, it is comfortable for us to drive along this way. The elevation is grown to 2000m, after one and half hour`s driving we arrive at the foot of Mt. Balang.
The foot of Mt. Balang--Rilong:
This section is very effective, but it is not always easy driving in winter because of the icy road and the high sea level. Even drivers who own abundant highland driving exprience should drive by carefully.The good newsis that you can appreciate the beautiful natural scenery while driving by.
