The expressway, also known as the ladder to heaven, stretches 240 km through the southwestern China province, forming part of the Beijing-Kunming Expressway. It crosses 12 seismic zones and several rivers and runs through rolling mountains, with 270 bridges and 25 tunnels along its route.[Photo/VCG]
