The World’s Highest and Longest Glass Bridge Is Opening In China Next Month

China is well-known for its massive scale. This time they take it to the extreme by constructing the highest and longest glass bridge in the National Park of Zhangjiajie in the Hunan province. The Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon was based as inspiration for the planet Pandora in Avatar.

Designed by Israeli architect Haim Dotan, the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge is set to be completed in July, with an official opening in October, according to CNN. It spans over two cliffs, stretching 430m and 6m wide and hovers over a terrifying 300m drop.

Dotan says the bridge will be able to hold up to 800 people at once. The bridge will be used as a fashion runway and offer the world’s highest bungee jump. I went on a trip with my family a few years back to Zhangjiajie – it was terrifying enough to walk around the pathway that is directly attached to the cliffs. It’s going to take more than an average adrenaline junkie to walk on that glass bridge from one cliff to another. You’ll be sweating through your clothes while walking that 430m span.
