Cliffside Steps

Situated in the Hunan Province, Its highest peak is around 5,000ft above sea level and it is home to a wealth of rare species of plants. A four-mile-long cable car was constructed in the park, which is said to be the longest of the same type in the world.Bring terror into the pit of your stomach, the path running alongside a Chinese mountainside is made out of glass. No matter how terrifying the glass walkway may be – it can only be an improvement from another sky high mountain walkway located in the same province.The Shifou Mountain, located 82 miles away, offers sightseers a 3ft-wide road made of wooden planks thousands of feet high.When finished the wooden ‘road’ – which is the width of a dinner table – will stretch for 1.8 miles making it China’s longest sightseeing path.The pathway, built earlier in the summer echoes the glass-bottomed walkway at the Grand Canyon in the U.S. The 70ft bridge is 4,000ft above the natural wonder and allows tourists to look through 2.5in of crystal-clear glass to the Canyon floor below.The Tianmen mountain, literally translated as Heavenly Gate Mountain is so called because of a huge natural cave that occurs halfway up to the summit.This path is not for the soft hearted person and for those having phobia on height but on the whole this path is full of thrill with excitement and best opportunity to see the nature by top view.
