China's newest tourist attraction... a glass-bottomed walkway around a cliff face

 Location :  ZhangJiaJie , TianMen Mountain    

Brave tourists looking to test their nerves have flocked to China to walk across a dazzling glass bridge suspended from a cliff face.

The oriental Skywalk is situated 4,700ft above sea level on the side of the Tianmen Mountain in Zhangjiajie , China .  

In order to keep the glass path clean, tourists are asked to put on shoe covers before passing.

The 200ft long bridge joins the west cliff at the Yunmeng Fairy Summit, the summit of Tianmen Mountain and Zhang Jiajie.

The pathway, built earlier in the summer echoes the glass-bottomed walkway at the Grand Canyon in the U.S.

The 70ft bridge is 4,000ft above the natural wonder and allows tourists to look through 2.5in of crystal-clear glass to the Canyon floor below.

The Tianmen mountain, literally translated as  Heavenly Gate Mountain is so called because of a huge natural cave that occurs halfway up to the summit.




Stunning: The skywalk offers breathtaking views across the Hunan Province for those brave enough to attempt to cross the bridge

Situated in the  Hunan Province ,  Its highest peak is around 5,000ft above sea level and it is home to a wealth of rare species of plants.

A four-mile-long cable car was constructed in the park, which is said to be the longest of the same type in the world.

The futuristic glass walkway is a marked upgrade from another sky high mountain walkway located in the same province.
