This incredible structure is located in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park in Hunan Province. The Coiling Dragon Cliff skywalk winds along Tianmen Mountain , following its contours and recesses. And that’s not the only such attraction nearby: the park has other glass “skywalks”, and the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge is one of the longest glass-bottom bridges in the world.

It is no exaggeration to say that this walkway is a vertigo sufferer’s worst nightmare. Sure, the view from up there is breathtaking , but would you be willing to have such an experience just to look at the view or even just to take an extreme selfie ?
