What’s more dangerous than a glass-bottom bridge? A bridge without a bottom, of course!

Such an aerial walkway buttressed by only ropes has opened at a tea park in Xuan'en County, in central China’s Hubei Province. The “air corridor” is suspended at least a dozen feet above the tea fields, and more than thirty feet at places, and runs for a length of about 1,000 meters. Only ropes, short wooden planks or tires are provided in the name of walkways. The scary attraction has drawn hundreds of tourists to the tea park already.

Xuan’en Country is located within the hinterlands of the Tujia and Miao ethnic minority group's autonomous prefecture of Central China's Hubei Province. It is part of the Wuling Mountain region in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River. This area has an ancient history of tea production.
