Acrophobes beware: Glass-bottomed bridge in China

The bridge will break several records. It measures 430 metres in length and is about 6 metres wide. It is suspended at 300 metres of altitude, making it both the longest and highest glass-bottomed bridge on earth.

Israeli architect Haim Dotan is the designer of this glass-bottomed bridge in China, which many hope will qualify as a further wonder of the world. When it has been inaugurated, it will support up to 800 people at one time. What’s more, it will serve as the starting point for the world’s highest bungee jump, overtaking current record-holder the Macau Tower.

Aside from all the new records, the bridge will certainly set a futuristic accent in the spectacular natural beauty of Zhangjiajie National Park, the area said to have inspired Planet Pandora from James Cameron’s film Avatar.
