World tallest elevator in China
The Bailong Elevator, also known as the Hundred Dragons Elevator, is in a mountain range in China’s Hunan Province. Noteworthy, the glass lift can carry up to 50 people at a time, and 1,380 an hour! Besides, it offers jaw-dropping, not to say vertiginous, views down to the bottom of the rocky mountain range in the Wulingyuan area of Zhangijiajie. However, the environmentalists met the project with fierce criticism. In particular, they were angry that it was constructed in the middle of a World Heritage Site. Yet, this is the world’s tallest full-exposure outdoor lift. Also, tallest double-deck sightseeing elevator. Besides, it is the fastest passenger elevator with the biggest capacity. The lift ride takes around a minute to reach the top. And from there tourists can see breath-taking views of the area’s quartzite sandstone pillars.
