China’s New Glass Walkway

If you like heights, this mountain-hugging path is for you…..


If hanging off the side of a mountain is your idea of fun, then we suggest China’s latest tourist attraction. A 328-foot-long glass walkway—fittingly called the Coiling Dragon Cliff—allows visitors to walk along a suspended path at the top of Tianmen Mountain in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. Located in the southern province of Hunan, this vertigo-inducing platform is only 5.24 feet wide and overlooks Tongtian Avenue—the iconic mountain road that boasts 99 spiral turns. Suspended 4,600 feet in the air, the walkway is definitely not for the faint of heart. But this isn’t the first time that Zhangjiajie National Forest Park has been chosen for a height-defying attraction. The world’s longest glass-bottom bridge—1,410 feet long and dangled over a 984-foot drop—was delayed from opening back in May. If you dare to make the trip to the top of this cliffside attraction, don’t forget your selfie stick.
