There are two ways of reaching the UFO glass bridge in Shilinxia valley. One option is to take the cable car and then climb uphill for about an hour. This can be a strenuous route for those with knee problems and heart issues. The other...More
We came here with a school PTA on the Saturday. The UFO platform was closed, with no reasons explained. The cable car is really out of date, we took it up. 100 CNY one way per person. Steps are narrow. Some areas are actually dangerous....More
