The Bailong Glass Elevator is built on the side of a huge cliff in the Wulingyuan area of Zhangjiajie, China.

It is claimed to be the highest and heaviest outdoor elevator in the world. Construction of the elevator began in October 1999, and it was opened to the public by 2002.

It’s so dangerous that operations were stopped for 10 months in 2002-2003 due to safety concerns.

On 16 July 2015, the elevator was officially recognized by Guinness World Records as the world’s tallest outdoor lift.
