Earlier this month, the Chinese province of Hunan opened a new glass walkway to the visiting public. Tourists may now enjoy its mountainous landscapes in a stunning yet terrifying way.
Hundreds of visitors armed with their camera phones and selfie sticks have braved the glass pathways since its opening on August 2.
While the transparent pathway certainly offers a unique, stunning view of the area, some visitors may also be too scared to even appreciate it. The view of the 300-meter drop below may prove to be terrifying for most. While some people are seen casually strolling along the path, there were also those who ended up clutching the arm rests while some find it safest to crawl throughout the bridge.
Measuring 100 meters (328 feet) long and 1.6 meters (5.25 feet) wide, the skywalk, called the “Coiling Dragon Cliff” goes around Tianmen Mountain, reported CNN. The path overlooks Tongtian Avenue, the mesmerizing mountain road famous for its 99 turns that leads up to Tianmen Mountain in Hunan’s Zhangjiajie National Forest Park.
Another upcoming tourist attraction in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, which was originally set to open earlier this year, is the world’s longest glass-bottom bridge.
The delayed bridge is reportedly 430 meters (1,410 feet) long, six meters (20 feet) wide and 300-meter (984 feet) high from the ground.
