The Bailong Elevator is the world’s highest outdoor elevator, an astonishing 1,080 feet tall. The glass double-deck elevator is built inside a massive sandstone column in a mountain range consisting of the National Forest Park in the Wulingyuan area of Zhangjiajie, China.
Opened in 2002, the cliff-facing elevator allows 50 visitors at a time to ride up the mountain in two minutes.
Alternatively, one can skip the scary cliff lift (also known as the Hundred Dragons Elevator) or take a more dangerous five-hour car ride up to the peak.
As you can imagine, the outdoor lift also provides panoramic scenery to its riders of bridges and villages below. Meanwhile, the top of the mountain features the scenic Yuanjiajie natural heritage spot.
