China’s Most Terrifying Cliffside Glass Skywalk

I fought through my fear of heights and braved the scariest walk in the world on the 4,600 foot high cliffside skywalk, in Tianmen Mountain in Hunan’s Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. It certainly isn’t for the faint-hearted, but the incredibly breathtaking views are rewarding.
