Leaving the camping at Qiandao lake and taking narrow serpentine road G237 thru mountains to Huangling mountains

The next one was an amazing place but we were too late to see the yellow flowers bloom

No good campsite in proximity so we did some boon-docking at the parking lot

In the morning we had breakfast at 36 County Rural Resort Hotel camping, but as the weekend has passed, so no buffet, anyway it was plenty for starting the day with. Filled the water tanks from the newly built water tap and we were good to go. During the drive, I made a mistake by missing the turn in the crossing and we missed the big road and I’m very happy about it. The GPS recalculated the road and we took a very small serpentine road over the mountains. Many times questioned our decision that where does this road end. The scenery was magnificent when reached the top of the mountain and GPS said the elevation was 750m. Tried to fly my drone there but it totally refused and don’t understand why.

During the drive, I made a mistake by missing the turn in the crossing to right and we missed the big road but I’m very happy about it. The GPS recalculated the road and we took a very small road over the mountains. Many times questioned our decision that where does this road end. To some farmers bamboo field on the top of the mountain? The scenery was magnificent when reached the top of the mountain and GPS said the elevation was 750m. On the way, the road went thru many small villages and got more and more narrow with some nasty 180 degrees curves. Balconies of the houses nearby the street reached out on the road + the cables were hanging lower and lower. On the top point tried to fly my drone, but it totally refused, and don’t understand why. I suspect it is some aviation regulation or the setting for the drone is max 500m. Where does it calculate it from? sea-level or start of flying point?

Below are the links for the peak at the mountain at 750m where we stopped for a short time. You can see how serpentine the road is from the map.

Serpentine road over the Hushan Mountain Road G237

Road G237 to Hushan Mountain

The road was like a snake when passing the mountains to Huangling. The higher we got the narrower was the road. But it was 100% worth it in the end. This is the peak at 750m up in the mountains. Take this road instead of the highway if you want to have a small adventure.

Serpentine roads

Arrived at the parking at the foot of Huangling Mountain and checked out for a parking space at the lot. There are no camping sites nearby so we decided to boon-docking at the parking area. Other campers had the same idea and there were maybe 4 other families staying there overnight. Sometimes when no other place is available big parking lots and service stations are the safest choice.
