As if hiking to the top of Grand Canyon was not scary enough, Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Tourism Management Co. has managed to add another thrill to it. With the help of Chinese builders and their world-class technology, Grand Canyon has become the proudest owner of world’s highest and longest glass-bottom bridge. The bridge is going to open for the brave-hearted visitors from early January’17.
The bridge is going to be 1410 feet long, 20 feet wide, 984 feet above the ground, and most importantly, it is completely see-through. The bridge is being built with 1.9-inches thick glass panels.
This particular part of the Grand Canyon is already famous as it featured in James Cameron’s Avatar. The new bridge would definitely add another feather to its majestic beauty.
The bridge would also let the most courageous tourists to try bungee jumping from top of it. The bridge officials informed that only 800 tourists will be allowed to walk at a time.
Grand Canyon also has a sky-walker in Arizona; Canada’s Alberta Glacier Skywalk also increases vertigo and acrophobia in the tourists. But there is absolutely no comparison between these two and the new Zhangjiajie Bridge. This bridge is going to be the Ultimate challenge for the tourists.
