As the world’s biggest polluter, China faces an extraordinary challenge in reducing its emissions — one made all the more difficult because of the countless high-polluting factories scattered across the country.

Photojournalist Kevin Frayer traveled to Inner Mongolia with Getty Images earlier this month to capture some haunting pictures of life inside one steel mill.

If you’re scared of heights then you might want to look away now, because this walkway in China is your worst nightmare come true. The fact that it’s attached 4,600ft (1,403 metres) up the side of a mountain is scary enough, but the fact that it’s also made of glass is nothing short of terrifying. Situated on the side of Tianmen mountain in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, Hunan Province, the walkway is 328ft (100 metres) long and 5.2ft (1.6 metres) wide.
