The 100 metre long glass skywalk opened to the public on Monday. The skywalk stretches around a cliff on Tianmen Mountain in the southern Chinese province.
Some visitors could be seen clinging to the cliff’s side, others rolling around on the 1.6-meter-wide glass floor, with the selfie stick held high.
The skywalk has been named “Coiling Dragon Cliff” . The glass walkway is the third of its kind in the Tianmen Mountain Scenic Area.
The scenic walkway overlooks Tongtian Avenue. The mountain road has 99 turns that snakes up Tianmen Mountain in Hunan’s Zhangjiajie National Forest Park.
This isn’t the first Zhangjiajie attraction to take advantage of the area’s stunning surroundings. Cable cars have been constructed by French company Poma, that are used to pick up passengers from a nearby railway station and deliver them to the top of Tianmen Mountain.
On a clear day, walking on it, a sheer drop of thousands of feet below can be clearly seen. It gives a thrilling feeling like walking in the sky. It is definitely not suitable for the faint hearted.
The glass walkway closes when it is covered by ice and snow in winter.
