World’s Longest &Highest Glass-bottom Bridge Opening in Zhangjiajie

This July, the world’s longest and highest glass-bottom bridge will debut in China, above the breathtaking scenery of Wulingyuan area. Located in Zhangjiajie, China – which was the inspiration for James Cameron’s movie Avatar – the bridge is nearly 1,000 feet above the ground, providing stunning panoramic views for those thrill-seekers willing to cross the bridge. The bridge spans more than 1,400 feet  (the Grand Canyon Skywalk by comparison is only 69 feet long). It is 20 feet wide and can hold up to 800 people at once. Its transparent walkway is not only the largest of its kind ever built, but one of the most beautiful, with visibility over the top and sides, as well as through the bottom. The Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge floats in harmony with the surrounding scenery and affords tourists incredible views of the nearby sandstone and quartz peaks, trees, and waterfalls. Plans are also in the works to introduce a bungee jump from the bridge in the coming months. It too will be the world’s highest once completed.
