China Opens Suspension Bridge With A Glass Bottom

China has opened a unique suspension bridge. With clear glass panels for flooring, visitors will have an unhindered view of a 600-foot valley while being suspended between two mountain tops.



To cater to thrill seekers and adventure tourists, the 1,000-foot-long bridge stares down into the gorge 600-feet below, and nothing but a clear glass panel keeps them from falling. The bridge opened last week in Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon in central China’s Hunan province, and it links two peaks inside the Stone Buddha Mountain in Shiniuzhai Geopark. The mountains are part of the Shiniuzhai National Geological Park, which offers many breathtaking views and features some rare plants and vast ecological diversity.

According to those who envisioned the bridge, it was modeled after the “Avatar Hallelujah Mountain” ranges, which seem suspended mid-air. Incidentally, these mountains inspired James Cameron to create the surreal word of Pandora.
