Chinese daredevil walks 60-meter slackline between cliffs

Above raging waters… Chinese daredevil Zhang Liang walking a slackline between cliffs in southwest China’s Yunnan Province.

The 31-year-old successfully finished the 60-meter walk, 16 meters above the Tiger Leaping Gorge, in less than 6 minutes on Tuesday.

The slackline has a width of only 2.5 cm, or about one inch.

Zhang crossed with nothing but a small rope attached to his waist to stop him from falling.

With the stunt, Zhang broke a record that he has kept, for the longest slackline walk in China.

The Tiger Leaping Gorge is one of the deepest gorges in the world.

It is named for a tiger that is said to have escaped humans by leaping across the fierce waters where the canyon narrows.
