Walking in the Air…

After the glass bridge in Zhangjiajie in Hunan province expanded our horizons, Zhejiang is eager to open its very own mid-air glass plank road. On October 1, and only two hours’ drive away from Hangzhou, you could be winding your way along the mountainside through Chuanyan Shijiufeng Scenic Area in Shaoxing City on a glass plank road resembling a dragon flying in the sky.

Flying Dragon Glass Plank Road

The aptly named Flying Dragon Glass Plank Road comprises of three parts: the ancient wood plank road, the mid-air glass plank road and the Flying Dragon Skywalk. The plank road is 3200 meters in length, 1.6 meters in width and 200 meters above the ground and is the longest mid-air plank road in Zhejiang.

Chuanyan Shijiufeng

The home of the glass plank road, Chuanyan Shijiufeng Scenic Area (“Chuanyan” literally means rock piercing and “Shijiufeng” means 19 peaks) is suitably named as for the fact that within the scenic area there are 19 peaks connected with each other and all stretching for a total length of 2.5 km.

Chuanyan Shijiufeng is most famous for its enchanting natural scenery with spectacular Danxia landform peculiar-shaped rocks, towering peaks and magnificent waterfalls and its scenery is often compared to that of the Lijiang River in Guilin.

It is amidst these cliffy and picturesque nineteen peaks that a 108-meter-long glass plank road is hung high in the sky which makes you feel like you are walking in the air.
