Glass walkway at Tianmen Moutain

Most recently in November 2011, China has launched the new path circling China’s Tianmen Mountain National Park which is a 61 meter (200 foot) long walkway of glass floor and railings. The walkway sits snugly against the mountain instead of jutting out over space but still offers a truly panoramic view all the way down the cliff side. Tianmen Mountain walkway is one of the world’s highest observation platforms at about 1,430 meters (4,700 feet) above sea level.Park regulations require tourists visiting the site to wear anti-slip shoe covers to keep the two and a half inch thick glass clean.
