A winding road snakes through a steep hillside landscape like a ribbon in Gansu Province, Northwest China.

The perilous looking pass was photographed by Jackie Xie, 45, from Chengdu, China.

Jackie said, "This road links the popular scenic spots from the top of the hillside to the ones below. The blue and orange colours are actually curbs, and it's a two-way road - it's very steep and gets busy with tourists."
