China’s Glass Walkway Of Terror Cracks! World’s Wildest Hiking Trail! China’s Amazing Adventures!


Talk About Hiking AROUND A Mountain!

I love these stories about China, including this incredible bridge made of glass!

It’s a glass-bottomed “skywalk” – that is wrapped around a mountain more than 3,000 feet in the air!


Welcome to Yuntai Mountain!

This is amazing to me. As I found reported online:

“The glass path that spans about 850 feet along the side of Yuntai Mountain in China’s Henan Province, was unveiled to the public on Sept. 20 2015, according to People’s Daily Online. “

So far, so good….



The Walkway Cracks!

After only a few weeks open, a panicked group of tourists fled the path when someone dropped something — which some outlets report as a thermos and others as simply a “steel cup” — and caused one of the three glass panes that make up the walkway to crack!


Here is the account of an eye witness:

“As I looked below me, I realized that the glass panel had cracked,” a man named Li Donghai posted on Weibo, China’s version of Twitter, after the incident, according to Shanghaist. “I’m not sure what caused the crack, but there were people screaming that very moment and I yelled, ‘It’s shattered! It’s really shattered!’ before pushing aside all the people in front of me to make my escape.”

I love how he chose to “push aside all the people in front of me!”


Just One Of China’s Many Glass-Bottomed Bridges!

Here is why I need to get to China.

The report quickly points out that the “walkway in question is not the same structure as a glass-bottomed suspension bridge that recently opened at China’s Shiniuzhai National Geological Park, though some outlets have mistakenly confused them”…that’s right, China has a number of glass bottom suspension bridges! Here is a look at that glass-suspension bridge:

As you can see, China is doing amazing things with their bridges – just make sure they don’t crack! Oh, and what about this Chinese hiking trail?

Yes, that is a real hiking trail! See more about that, and china’s other glass suspension bridge, here:

China seems like a really fun place to visit, although I’m not sure that this would be a fun way to spend a day at the amusement park:

Yep, a chinese roller coaster got stuck – upside down! See that story here:

Finally, there was the great “walled city of Kowloon” that used to exist in China as well:

    In the mood for a hike?


  5. As I have mentioned before, I have been to Beijing, and the Great Wall. Fortunately, I never ventured on to a cracked glass walkway!
    I did ride down this though.

    It is now called The Great Wall Slide. When I went there, it was known as the Mutianyu Toboggan. Each person has their own car, and you have to control it with a brake lever between your legs. it feels faster than it looks on the clip. I got covered in oil and grease from all the lubricants on the brake gears.
    Regards, Pete.
