In China, they’re putting a fresh twist on the way travelers can experience the country’s incredible natural beauty. One of the most popular spots in the nation, China’s Tianmen Mountain has installed a glass sidewalk affixed to the sheer face of the mountainside.
The “Coiling Dragon Cliff” skywalk hangs 4,600 feet off the ground. Stretching 100 meters long, with a width of a mere 5 feet, the skywalk is the third of its kind in the Tianmen Mountain region. This newest addition to the mountain overlooks China’s famed Tongtian Avenue. The snaking mountain road, whose name translates to “Avenue to the Sky,” ascends Tianmen Mountain with an astounding 99 turns as it travels through Hunan’s Zhangjiajie National Forest Park.
So far the reactions to the new sidewalk have been overwhelmingly positive. Well, obviously some people prefer to keep as far away from the edge as possible, but that does little to interrupt the jaw-dropping views. If you think you can keep your lunch down, then the “Coiling Dragon Cliff” skywalk isn’t to be missed.
