Shut Up And Take My Balls! China’s Glass Walkway Opens In Tianmen Mountain

China has opened a 100-metre-long glass skywalk stretching around a cliff on the side of the Tianmen Mountain in Hunan province. The skywalk provides a view of a 300-metre drop and overlooks Tongtian Avenue, a mountain road with 99 turns that snakes up the mountain. When translated in English, it means “Avenue to the Sky”. The 1.6-metre wide glass-floored skywalk has been dubbed “Coiling Dragon Cliff” and is the third of its kind in the area.

The area is incredibly popular with tourists and has a range of attractions including a cable car that transports people from the nearby train station to the top of the mountain. The first of Tianmenshan’s skywalks opened in November 2011 and has since become a tourist hotspot. The world’s longest glass-bottom bridge is set to open soon in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. The bridge will be 430-metres long and six metres wide.
