Walking on air

The world's longest glass bottom bridge. Could you walk across?

Walking on air

Newly opened, this terrifying bridge in China has recently undergone a frightening refurbishment.

The bridge, which was once all wooden, has now reopened as a completely glass-bottomed walkway.

Located in Shiniuzhai Geopark, Hunan, the bridge spans 300 metres and is 180 metres above the ground.

The floor is made of a specially designed, double glazed glass, which is reportedly a whopping 25 times stronger than our regular window glass.

And it would want to be, it took 11 engineers working around the clock for months at a time to link the two peaks of Stone Buddha Mountain.

The bridge, previously regarded as a mental challenge when it was made of wood, is now so terrifying to tourists that it as been labelled the “hero bridge.”

Would you like to take on the challenge of crossing the glass bottomed bridge?
