China builds sky high Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge

January 31, 2016

Travelers and tourists will soon be able to walk across the world’s longest and highest glass bottom bridge. The bridge spans two cliffs in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park located in China’s Hunan Province. It is 430 meters long and six meters wide hovering over a 300 meter drop.

The bridge hangs above the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon and once completed will be able to hold 800 people at once. Designer, Haim Dotan also plans to have the bridge feature the world’s highest bungee jump and have the bridge serve as a fashion runway.

China’s national parks have been focusing on creating unique bridges that are becoming more and more ambitious. The Zhangjiajie Bridge is being promoted as the next wonder of the world by Chinese officials.

The future plans for the construction is to build a structure at the end of the bridge that fades away in to the clouds. What was once supposed to be completed by the end of 2015, the bridge will now be open to tourists in May 2016.
