Spectacular drone video captured another tunnel carved through the mountain cliffside in southwestern China's Bijie, which serves as the main road for villagers to go out of the mountain area.

The clip shows vehicles driving along the 470-metre-long and 4.5-metre-wide tunnel carved through the side of a mountain.

Since the villagers wanted to go out of the mountain area, they decided to build a road on the cliff to connect the nearest village in 2000.

The local government supported the project with goods, materials and partial funding.

The tunnel was carved successfully in 2003 despite one villager dying and over a dozen villagers being injured in the process. The tunnel has since been upgraded to a wider one in 2014, after another two year excavation.
