Cross China's Glass Bridge

COMPLETED BY 0

LISTED 131

A 430-metre-long glass bridge has been constructed across a deep canyon in China's Zhangjiajie National Forest Park.

Designed by architect Haim Dotan, the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge is believed to be the world's longest and tallest glass pedestrian bridge.

Glass panels are set into its walkway, giving visitors vertigo-inducing views and photo opportunities of the canyon below.

The bridge rests on the edge of two cliffs and is suspended 300 metres above the ground by stay cables.

Wavy slatted handrails line edges of the glazed walkway, which narrows towards the centre of the canyon to create an exaggerated perspective.

The bridge is capable of holding up to 800 people at any one time and has already been used as the launch point for the world's highest bungee jump, said the architect.

Already a hugely popular tourist attraction, the bridge will also serve as a venue for private events, including as a runway for fashion shows.
