China has unveiled a new, frighteningly high glass skywalk wrapped around a cliff on Tianmen Mountain in the southern province of Hunan.

The 100-metre ‘Coiling Dragon Cliff’ walk sits 1402 metres above the ground.

Brave visitors can see all the way down to the bottom of the cliff as they stand on the glass path, if they can handle the risk of vertigo. The view from that high above sea level is said to be stunning, and more than a little terrifying.

Tianmen Tongtian Avenue can be seen below, which features a staggering 99 turns, People’s Daily reports.
