China’s ‘floating plank’ built in the middle of a river

These incredible aerial images show a stunning scenic route in the depth of a valley in Hubei, central China, that was once only accessible via rowing boats.

The wooden walkway in the Shiziguan scenic area, captured for the first time on Saturday, was unveiled to the public on Sunday during the country’s Labour Day weekend.

Measuring approximately 1,640 feet long (500 metres), it wraps around the mountains that surrounds it according to People’s Daily Online.

As the images show, tourists are able to walk up or downstream, following the course of the river.

The walkway floats on the river, giving visitors the sensation that they’re walking on water.

All around them is the lush, green forests, creating a feeling of serenity.  

Tourists can follow the path up and downstream while immersing themselves in the sights around them

Many of the tourists were seen photograph the area as well as posing for pictures themselves. One is even seen lying on the ground to take photos
