“Sandstone Pillars”

With over 3,000 sandstone peaks and pillars, some reaching as far as 200 meters into the sky, the Wulingyuan Scenic and Historic Area is over 26,000 acres of absolutely beautiful wilderness.  This scenic place includes over 40 caves, two amazing natural bridges, and an awe-inspiring landscape. The area is also home to some of the countries endangered animals and plants.  "There are loads of glass skywalks around the world that aim to challenge scaredy cats to make the terrifying trek across without tossing their cookies. The Zangjiajie National Forest's amazing 60-meter long bridge encircles the face of the Tianmen Mountain with a 3ft-wide, 2.5 inch thick glass walkway so scary most people make the lap plastered to the cliffside. And when you see the 4,000-foot plunge to the forest below, who can blame them. If you're brave enough to make the hike to the skywalk (also known as The Walk of Faith at you'll be 4,700-feet above sea level, where the view is incredible and on a good day is in the company of the clouds. Oh yeah, and the skywalk is made out of glass, giving guests a crystal-clear view of the unbelievable drop just 2.5 inches under their feet. Visitors are even asked to wear a pair of no-slip cloth booties over their shoes to help you from falling over the side (yikes), and also to keep the glass as clear as possible.  The amazing bridge is 200 feet-long and joins the west cliff to the Yunmeng Fairy Summit, and thankfully it's not all glass. The three-foot-wide snaking pathway is flanked on either side by the mountain wall and an intricate railing that keeps you from sailing over the edge. The literal translation of Tianmen means Heavenly Gate Mountain, and making the nervous scamper over top of the surrounding national park on a sheet of glass makes the Walk of Faith an unadulterated adrenaline spiker. It's even been compared to the Grand Canyon West Skywalk. The walkway has been giving people anxiety since its debut in November of 2011, and is one of the world's highest platforms where guests can take in the sites for miles and miles around. If you're thinking about making the hike staff encourages everyone visiting to come wearing comfortable shoes for the hike to the top... and for obvious reasons, not to lean too far over the railing." -Roadtrippers

The strange stone giants are surrounded on either side by beautiful streams, waterfalls, pools, and gorges, with over 40 unique caves hidden among the lush forest!
