The 300-foot long Coiling Dragon Cliff skywalk opened on August 1. It’s built into the sheer cliff face of Tianmen Mountain in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park and hovers over a vertiginous vertical drop.
Constructed 1,500 meters above sea level, the bridge is 100 meters long and 1.6 meters wide. Those brave enough to make the crossing are rewarded with breathtaking views of Hunan province’s unique landscape. It is actually the third glass walkway in the Tianmen Mountain area. Also available to thrill-seeking tourists is a 430-meter-long bridge overlooks a 300-meter-deep canyon.
The skywalk offers a view of Tianmen Mountain’s famous ‘Bending Road,’ which winds up the mountainside and contains exactly 99 turns.
Tianmen Mountain is Zhangjiajie prefecture’s tallest mountain at 1517.9 meters above sea level. It has traditionally been viewed as a sacred mountain by locals and officially became a National Forest Park in 1992.
