I’ve seen my share of products and services that go out of their way to make an experience more memorable than the products themselves (Dinner in the Sky, Total Darkness Restaurant, Fish Pedicure, Catch Your Own Sushi Restaurant, Unusual hotels), but when I was sent photos of this restaurant (perhaps just a temple) on the peak of a mountain side I freaked!!! I would have never guessed the pathway to get food food to be terrifying. Personally, I’m scared of heights, though I love pushing myself to fight it, but after seeing these pictures, I’d wonder how safe (crazy) this experience would be just for some food up high. I don’t see any safety nets or belts… doesn’t wood rot?
A bunch of crazy pictures documenting the pathway to this crazy restaurant up high.(thanks yoyo)
Update: a video.(also after jump)
Get a ride up high, and climb the rest…sounds simple right..
Ahh, narrow pathways with metal chain fences…I can handle this.
Uhmmm.. wtf … are you kidding!
Follow the leader! Don’t look back, and don’t let go! and watch your step.
Okie, your crazy!
ahhh, food..finally! Was it worth the trek up? (hope ya didn’t forget your wallet)
FYI: I have no idea where this is…but if you can read chinese characters, the name is on the lower right of some images….though, my friends don’t know where it is still.
ooooooh hhhhhhhhheeell freakin’ NO! I’m just imagining a trip with my post-menopaused parents and siblings, and NO! My poor petite little mamma won’t be able to hang for dear life on those chains!
Unless you get strapped with a cord to ensure your safety, I’d severely pass on a family voyage for some non-vegetarian cuisine!
If i were alone w/ other athletic friends, on the other hand, I’d most likely do it.
“I miss Jimmy”
“yeah, me too…he never made it to the restaurant”
“now he can view it from heaven!”
There HAS to be a secret path for employees and food deliveries. Maybe there’s a helicopter shuttle…
elliot, thanks for the wiki links. I was basing my information on the email I got with text which claimed it to be a restaurant though i figured it was a temple…perhaps its both. I think I’d be hungry after that climb.
