Tea appreciation, with a heady twist

Visitors checking out the tea plantation in Wujiatai Village in Xuan'en county may want to give its popular "Sky Corridor" a miss if they have a fear of heights or have unsteady knees.

The suspension bridge, made with rope and wooden planks, is 1km long and snakes through the plantation, which is located in the Enshi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture in central China's Hubei province.

The walk features scenic views of the lush area and, after the exercise, may present an appropriate remedy for visitors to steady their nerves: a strong cup of tea.

Known for producing high-quality tea leaves, Wujiatai has been developed into an eco-tourism attraction by the local government in recent years.
