Would YOU dare to cross it? New glass-bottomed walkway opens at 4,600ft on a Chinese mountain
Another frighteningly high glass-bottomed skywalk has been unveiled in the mountains of southern China, daring brave tourists to walk along a cliff with a cavernous drop on the other side.
The ‘Coiling Dragon Cliff’ walkway opened on August 1 on Tianmen Mountain, at the Tianmenshan National Park in Zhangjiajie, and has already welcomed visitors to try out its dizzying heights for themselves.
The 330ft-long path along the mountainside is just 5ft wide, giving tourists a very clear view of the plunging valley on the other side of the barrier, according to People’s Daily Online.
Coiling Dragon Cliff walkway, the third such walkway to open on the mountain, has been recently converted from a wooden pathway and sits at around 4,600ft above sea level.
The mountainous area is particularly popular with tourists for its remarkable natural scenery as well as for its relatively new attractions, the glass-bottomed walkways.

I wonder how long it will be before one of these glass walkways/bridges breaks, killing lots of people? I won’t be one of them though, as I’d never trust anything Chinese.
