Is this the world’s most terrifying lift? Striking aerial pictures show China’s 1,070-foot-tall glass elevator built on the side of a cliff
For some people, the fun of mountain climbing lies in the satisfaction of conquering endless stairs and walking through unspoiled forest; but for others, it’s all about the views from the top.
If you happen to be the latter, then this impressive observation lift in China could be your dream attraction.
A set of striking new pictures have emerged of the vertigo-inducing elevator, which is attached to the side of a cliff, overlooking the lush forest and rocky columns in central China’s Wulingyuan Scenic Area.
The incredible observation elevator, which is taller than The Shard, can transport visitors to the top of a 1,070-foot-tall cliff (362 metres) from its foot in less two minutes.
According to People’s Daily Online, the £13 million (120 million Yuan) project claims to be the highest and heaviest outdoor elevator in the world.

Terrifying? Definitely. Because of the height? No. Because of where it was MADE.

Wouldn’t get me on it, if it was produced locally. Death trap.

Glass? Apart from the windows in the lift cars themselves, it looks distinctly like a metal structure to me (and a bit of a blot on the landscape where it’s located as well)…..

It’s not terrifying at all. It’s far safer and smoother than apartment elevators.
