China’s Tianmen Mountain has a Glass Skywalk

by Mark R

Some of you might remember when we covered the Edge Walk at Toronto’s CN Tower, which is something for thrill seekers. There, you can walk on the edge of a 1,168 foot tower on a line.

Now there is an excellent attraction made for those who want a little thrill in their tour, and it is 4 times higher at 4,700 feet. This is a glass skywalk located on the side of Tianmen mountain in Zhangjiajie, and there is a video after the break if you want to see it for yourself.

This is a terrific way to get some “breathtaking views of the mountains”, and I am not talking about just underneath the sidewalk. By the way, these sidewalks are 2.5 inches thick, so there isn’t a way you are going to fall through, no matter how much jumping you will do. Unless someone brings one of those rings that can shatter glass, like in Die Another Day.

Okay, so this is probably going to go on my list of places to go before I die. Is there any one of our readers who have been here, and walked across this sidewalk? If so, please leave a comment and let me know how it was.

Not impressed. There is a glass U-shaped skywalk at the Grand Canyon that is suspended 75 feet out from the cliff, looking over 4,000 feet down. Google “hualapai skywalk”
