Mutuo is the last county in China with absolutely no road leading to it. County houses 1/10th of all of China’s flora. Millions of dollars have been spent in an attempt to build a road leading into it, but every effort has failed due to avalanches, landslides or mudslides. The only road that was ever completed was overgrown by wildlife within a matter of weeks. For those ready to go on foot, they must travel through frozen parts of the Himalayas before crossing a 200-foot suspension bridge.
