The gorge is 2km long  and 100m in wideth. Between the perpendicular cliffs at both sides witha perpendicular height difference to about 300m, the Jialing River rushes passionately . From ancient times to nowadays, the gorges have integrated six functions of  plank road, post road, dangerously norrow hill path for boat trackers, water channel , highway and railway. This is raare not only domestically but also around the world, which deserves the reputation as "the traffic history museum of China" it is also the crucial route from which Zhugeliang got out of Mt.Qishan for six times for marching north to the central plain, and the site where the putting plank road on fire scene in TV drama Romance of the Three Kingdoms is shot .
