Walk of Faith


From DeMilked: "If you have nerves of steel, you should definitely try this newly built glass walkway in China called the Walk of Faith."


"A 60-meter-long glass plank walkway 1,430 metres (4,690 feet) up Zhangjiajie Tianmen Mountain gives tourists an unforgettable sightseeing experience."


Nothing like a bit of understatement.


Wait a sec ... what's that music I'm hearing?

This can be one of the best experiences one may ever experience in his whole life! Walking by and waiting for the huge rock to fall :P

What are the two most likely failure mode? A wild animal or natural rock fall on the glass walkway might make very interesting experiences for most pedestrians.

Considering the luck the Chinese have had with their railroad systems of late (that is, none at all), I'm with Maximillian. Actually, none of those "look waaayyy down!" walkways do anything for me. I already have enough scary things in my life.

Me, I'm hearing this:

There ought to be one of those Limited Edition Shiro Kuramata glass chairs along the way so you can have a seat and not have your terror spoiled by anything opaque.

Gives a different meaning to,

"Made in China".

Umm... built in China? I think I'll pass. I'd rather hit up the Grand Canyon Skywalk.
