Walking on Air – A Glass Mountain Walkway in China

Imagine walking along a glass pavement attached at a right angle to the side of a sheer mountain cliff? Well in China you can have this mind-boggling and scary experience. 1.42km off the ground on the side of the Zhangjiajie Tienanmen Mountain a 60 meter long and 1 meter wide glass walk way or Walk of Faith has been constructed. On one side of you is the mountain cliff, under you can look all the way down the mountain side and on the outer rim is a single metal banister connected to the glass walkway by more see-through plastic. The “glass” which is probably some kind of transparent plastic is 6 cm thick.

The site is located in the Tienanmen Mountain National Forest Park, close to Zhangjiajie Village in Hunan Province. Other amazing and unique sites in the park are the Tienanmen Mountain cableway, Tienanmen Cave, Bonsai Garden on Air and the Tongtian Dadao or Avenue Leading to the Sky. The park is an incredible destination with plenty to see and do but the Walk of Faith will be the one you remember most!
