One of Hunan's highest and most spectacular glass cantilevered platforms, the Shiniuzhai Glass Viewing Platform is part of the ever expanding Shiniuzhai Resort area.

Also opening at this time was the unique X-shaped Shiniuzhai Tiankongzhijing Glass Footbridge which opened as the second glass pedestrian tourist crossing after the original Shiniuzhai Glass Footbridge was completed in 2016. The two decks of the 2021 spans cross about 40 meters above a reservoir that is approximately 10 meters deep at the "X" spot. The East-West main span is approximately 190 meters long and the North-South main span is approximately 160 meters long. The original Shiniuzhai Glass Footbridge is located 400 meters downstream.

The Shiniuzhai Resort area has towering rock formations and cliffwalks that have become extremely popular with tourists. In addition to the two suspension bridges there is also a cantilevered glass platform and two cablecars including the original installed in 2009. Located just an hour from the giant city of Changsha, the area and its attractions are designated as an official Geopark.
