I've been trying to look up information on that road for months now, and as far as I can tell it's a non-public road. (EDIT: looked up information on it months ago, off-and-on)
Looking at mapping services, it actually doesn't show up as a normal road, but does appear only on a Satellite view. Along with a major piece of infrastructure at the juncture where this awesome, snake-like road appears and where the normal road ends, I'm thinking that access is limited.

Of course, if we can get a WW member in China to verify all of this... and possible negotiate access on behalf of some friends, then we may have a WW China trip on our hands.
:twisted:

Took these this weekend while riding the Alpine Loop Granfondo. What at an awesome and tough ride. 2 "gravel" climbs with the second being 11 miles of suffering:
