 The woodland walk project initiated by the Chinese Academy of Forestry (CAF) will be implemented in Baotianman Scenic Area in Neixiang county, Nanyang.

The trail will be paved with environmentally friendly materials, such as anticorrosive wood, with a width of 2.5 to 3 meters and a length of about 2 kilometers, about half of which will be in the air.

The project is a high-end research topic of the CAF with world-class design standards. It consists of several parts, such as a healthcare index display system, an experience platform system, a science display system, a guide signal system, supporting infrastructure, a team of volunteers and physiotherapists, a lit night path, and a glass skywalk.

The skywalk will be the first scientific, interesting, interactive, and intelligent woodland skywalk in Henan province, as well as the first healthcare-themed trail in a forest in China. It will enrich tourism resources in Nanyang and promote the city's forest tourism.

Baotianman Scenic Area was selected as the site for the project due to its favorable natural and construction environment. Baotianman is famous for its dense primeval forest and a variety of wild animals and plants. It is the only world biosphere reservation area in Henan province and the core scenic area of Nanyang Funiushan World Geological Park.
