The 688-meter long escalator is the world's longest and takes up to 7300 visitors per hour up China's Grand Canyon at the cost of just 20 RMB per person, making the sites of the region accessible to tourists of any fitness level and any budget. The gorge itself is 60 miles long and 4500 feet in depth, and cuts through the mountains of western Hubei province. Eco-friendly wooden walkways have been built at dizzying heights along some of the most scenic sections of Enshi Grand Canyon, allowing tourists to take in the views without damaging the surrounding ecosystems. The park also boasts the gigantic Soaring Dragon Cavern; considered to be one of the world's largest.
