Nope: 4,600-Ft High Glass Cliff Walkway Opens In China

August 15, 2016

China's obsession with terrifying glass bridges continues with the opening of this 1,603-meter (4,600-foot) tall walkway around Coiling Dragon Cliff on Tianmen mountain in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park (which is also home to this insane glass bridge). Would you walk on it? I don't think I could. I'm afraid of heights. Just kidding, I'm afraid the wings I made out of coat hangers and bedsheets would fail after I leapt over the edge.

Keep going for a handful of terrifying photos.

Thanks to Stephanie B, who expressed a very serious interest in going to experience this. Me? I'm expressing a very serious interested in tacos for lunch today.

    i'm more terrified of the built quality than the concept...

  • Terry Everly

    parts of it have wooden porch railing..no way in hell

    Glass is a little bit slippery to me, what happens when clouds get it all wet and someone just slides right the hell off that thing - they were halfway hanging off the side as it is, shouldn't the walls be bigger?? Oh hell no. Hell no. WTF China - you can't clean the freaking air of choking smog but you built this death trap? I mean..why...and notice how it disappears into trees...does it just end? Where is the end? Is this a slide to a sacrificial pit?? *hyperventilates*

    China doesn't value human life. Although they are cleaning the air now that they're moving away from fossil fuels at a surprisingly rapid pace.

  • Well, let the countdown begin... I'm going to reference this comment when this bridge inevitably breaks in probably the near future.

    Apologies for the pedantry, but 1, 603 meters is 5,259 feet, or 21 feet short of a mile. Might make for a more compact headline!

  • GeneralDisorder

    It's 1403. There's a typo here.

  • Superior_Joe

    Apology... rejected.

    I am not afraid of heights. I am afraid of dying from falling from something very high. Maybe a little afraid of being conscious the whole time. No way I would do this.

  • GeneralDisorder

    That's funny. I'm afraid of ladders up to about 12 feet from the ground. Once I make it past that point I'm good because I know if I fall I probably won't be conscious after the landing.

    Fasion a parachute out of your clothes on the way down.

    Tacos sound great today, but I think they would be even better tomorrow.
