Visitors to Zhangjiajie National Forest Park can finally walk across the longest and highest glass-bottomed bridge in the world sometime in July.
The bridge was originally scheduled to be completed last October, during prime glass-bottomed bridge mania in China, but in order to avoid any mishaps, like what occurred on the glass bridge in Hunan’s Yuntai Mountain, the designers decided to take their time and subject the bridge to rigorous testing to ensure that it can withstand any kind of wear and tear from both human and non-human factors. Apparently construction was also slowed by rain.
Spanning the length of the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon, the long-awaited bridge extends 430 meters across the canyon and 300 meters above the canyon floor. The skywalk was designed by Israeli architect Haim Dotan, who says the bridge will also serve as a runway for fashion shows.
The skywalk can hold up to 800 visitors at one time. Who
