The Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge, which opened in August of 2016, officially takes the title of longest and highest glass bridge in the world. It spans the width of the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon running 430 meters long and dangling 300 meters in the air above the river gorge.
The bridge, designed by Israeli architect Haim Dotan, consists of many large square glass tiles bound together on all sides with strips of metal that run consecutively down the middle of the bridge. From railing to railing the bridge measures 6 meters wide and can hold up to 800 people at a time.
Currently, the bridge is restricted to a maximum of 8000 people a day, so make sure to come early during peak season to get a glimpse of this architectural marvel. Along with its tourist drawl, the bridge will also be home to the world’s highest bungee jump and serve as a runway for fashion shows.
