Coiling Dragon Cliff: Stomach churning glass skywalk in China’s Tianmen Mountain

If you are afraid of heights, then you will experience vertigo just looking at the pictures of this terrifying glass walkway in China’s Tianmen Mountain. Located at the dizzying height above Hunan’s Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, this has to be the most breath-taking view that you can ever imagine. The walkway is 100 meter long and spans 1.6 meter wide which in itself is a marvel of modern construction techniques. Aptly named as the Coiling Dragon Cliff, this skywalk opened to public couple of days ago, and since then it has become the hot topic on internet.

Just look at the sheer height at which this glass walkway is built. Looking down will make your stomach go weak, and people with acrophobia will have a hard time walking on it. Infact, walking on the Coiling Dragon Cliff is an achievement in itself.

This is not the first time Chinese have come-up with glass walkways that are not for the faint-hearted. Before this they have made two glass walkways, one of them is the glass bridge that goes 430 m over a canyon.

Coiling Dragon Cliff overlooks the 99 road turns which coil around the canyon’s base, and you can very well imagine the kind of feeling down from the clear glass of the walkway. Some tourists stayed close to the mountain side while talking a walk, while other daring one walked close to the railings.

Just have a look at the pictures to imagine what it would be like to walk on the Coiling Dragon Cliff!
