Don’t look down!
If you have strong heart and want to see the world at the height of 4,000ft Chinese cliff-face is the place for you. This place offers you a walking path made up of glass at the height of 4,000ft above a rocky ravine. This is not an ordinary path, while walking on it you can feel that there is nothing under your feet.
Recent visitor STEPHANIE DARRALL updates his vies and thoughts on 11th November 2011. He said that “it is not a path for the faint-hearted. One side of your face there is a sheer rock and on the other side there is 4,000ft drop. This deadly path is 3ft-wide, 2.5in thick and totally made up of glass.
And if that is not enough to bring terror into the pit of your stomach, the path running alongside a Chinese mountainside is made out of glass, allowing a crystal-clear view of where one false step can take you.
Dazzling: A glass path suspended on a cliff face has been built on the side of the Tianmen Mountain in China
The skywalk is situated 4,700ft above sea level on the side of the Tianmen Mountain in Zhangjiajie, China.
The 200ft long bridge joins the west cliff at the Yunmeng Fairy Summit, the summit of Tianmen Mountain and Zhang Jiajie.
And it would appear to be too scary for the cleaners – tourists are asked to put on shoe covers before passing to help keep the path clean.
The pathway, built earlier in the summer echoes the glass-bottomed walkway at the Grand Canyon in the U.S.
The 70ft bridge is 4,000ft above the natural wonder and allows tourists to look through 2.5in of crystal-clear glass to the Canyon floor below.
Stunning: The skywalk offers breathtaking views across the Hunan Province for those brave enough to attempt to cross the bridge
Situated in the Hunan Province, Its highest peak is around 5,000ft above sea level and it is home to a wealth of rare species of plants
A four-mile-long cable car was constructed in the park, which is said to be the longest of the same type in the world.
And no matter how terrifying the glass walkway may be – it can only be an improvement from another sky high mountain walkway located in the same province.
The Shifou Mountain, located 82 miles away, offers sightseers a 3ft-wide road made of wooden planks thousands of feet high.
When finished the wooden ‘road’ – which is the width of a dinner table – will stretch for 1.8miles making it China’s longest sightseeing path.
Not so high spec: Workers built a 3ft-wide plank road on the side of Shifou Mountain, in Hunan Province, China earlier this year
