Zhangjiajie Park, China: Petrifying new glass skywalk in one of the world's most spectacular national parks

A new glass skywalk opening this week in China threatens to break the most fearless of travellers.

On Tianmen Mountain in Zhangjiajie Park, the 100-metre-long, 1.6 metre-wide skywalk is made entirely of glass and clings to the side of Coiling Dragon Cliff.

Towering a sickening 1000 metres above the scenery below, the walkway winds its way around one the many formidable, forested towers this spectacular national park contains.

And for those travellers who really have something to prove, you'll soon be able to bungee jump from the bridge's centre into the valley below.
