Yichang, China


Cliff-hanging restaurant. 

Hiking through the mountains usually entail being far away from civilization, being exposed to the elements, and eating dry foods from zip-lock baggies.

That is, unless you’re hiking in the vicinity of the Happy Valley of Xiling Gorge, where you can find a full-service restaurant perilously perched on the side of a cliff. If you don’t look down, and swallow that feeling of vertigo, you can focus on the amazing views and local cuisine that the restaurant has to offer.
