World’s highest glass-bottomed bridge

China is set to become home of the tallest and longest pedestrian bridge in the world, when construction of a glass-bottomed bridge is complete in the national park that inspired the floating mountains from the James Cameron film “Avatar.”

Hovering a dizzying 300 meters (984 feet) above the ground, the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge will span 380 meters (1,247 feet) in length and 6 meters (20 feet) wide.

Designed by Tel Aviv-based architectural firm Haim Dotan Ltd., the bridge can accommodate up to 800 people and will feature the world’s highest bungee jump.

Construction of the bridge will be complete in July and the official opening is set for October.
