Throughout history, China has made bold statements to the world. From the Great Wall of China to the opening ceremony of the 2008 Olympics. As they cement themselves as a world power they continue to make headlines. This time around they are making headlines for the world’s tallest glass bridge, says BBC.
Nestled in Zhangjiajie –which served as the inspiration and filming location for James Cameron’s Avatar — this bridge is both the world’s tallest and longest glass-bottom bridge at a staggering 1,400-feet-long and 984 feet above the valley below, containing 99 panes of three-layered transparent glass. The project, which was completed in December, opened up to the public this weekend and drew thousands of tourists to the Hunan province to experience what real fear is.
This bridge is the latest in glass-bottomed attractions in Zhangjiajie, with there also being this crazy, snake-like path that wraps around one of the cliffs.
