China’s Amazing 999-Step Mountaintop Obstacle Course! A Glass Skywalk Too!

Welcome To Tianmen Mountain!

Here is one of nature’s most amazing sights: a mountain that has a hole in it!

Tianmen Mountain in China is famous for its water-eroded cave, which literally formed a “hole” in the mountain! It also has an amazing pathway – an impressive flight of 999 stairs leading up to it. It take more than a half hour just to walk up it.

For one amazing Parkour athlete, he did the opposite – he RAN DOWN IT in two minutes – while filming with a goPro in his mouth!

Calen Chan performed this “ninja warrior” style magic.

Here’s how he explains the video:

“My name is Calen Chan, and this is a FULL POV RUN of the Skyladder Parkour course at Tianmen Mountain in China! I had the wonderful opportunity to come and play here at this beautiful location called Heaven’s Gate. It has an average incline of 45 degrees, and is 999 steps long (about 3 football fields)!”

Here is his youtube video of the run!

Thanks as always to “RocketNews24” for the story – check it out here:

By the way, Tianmen Mountain in China also has a mile-high hiking trail – made of glass!

Yes, they built a glass walkway around the mountain!

I’ve shown you some of these incredibly dangerous mountain trails in China:

Speaking of Parkour, it reminds me of G4’s amazing show “Ninja Warrior!”

Yes, Olivia Munn took the challenge and rank this parkour course – see how she did here:

  1. That’s a great video of the free-running, John. I liked all the surprised people trying to get out of the way. As for the hill/steps, I could probably manage to walk up them, normally!
    Best wishes, Pete.
