By Nathalie Craig11 Apr 2019There are certain things in this world that you need to see to believe – and the tallest outdoor elevator which stretches 326 metres up a sandstone cliff face in China’s Zhangjiajie National Forest Park – is definitely one of them.If you’re heading to China, the Bailong elevator (aka The Hundred Dragons Elevator) needs to be on your list.This feat of engineering shoots up the cliff face in less than two minutes while passengers marvel at some of the best views they’ve seen in their lives.The first 154 meters runs through an underground shaft then BOOM, the views hit and the rest is 172 meters outside the summit.The three double-decker glass elevators let you look out on the forest’s massive monolith formations which were said to have inspired Avatar‘s Hallelujah Mountains of Pandora.Each elevator has the capacity for 4900 kilograms or around 50 people. Quick, claim a spot with the best vantage point!From its peak visitors can get a bird’s eye view over majestic Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, an incredible UNESCO Heritage Site (another place that needs to be seen to be believed). It’s worth spending lots of time up here just soaking it all in.The Guinness Book of Records has officially given the elevator the tick of approval as being the world’s tallest outdoor elevator…that is until something even crazier is built!
