World’s Longest and Highest Glass Bottom Bridge to Be Unveiled in Chinese National Park

In July of this year, China's scenic Zhangjiajie National Park will be opening the very first bridge of its kind. The Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Skywalk is set to be the world's longest and highest glass-bottomed bridge, coming in at 1,410 feet long, 20 feet wide, and 984 feet above ground. The glass structure is being designed by Israeli-based architect Haim Dotan and many hope that it will become a Wonder of the World, especially since it represents unique architecture that tests the limits of human creativity. 

Once the skywalk is unveiled, it will be able to hold up to 800 people at once. It will also feature the world's highest bungee jump, stealing the title from Macau Tower's incredible 764-foot high attraction. In addition to these world records, the bridge will certainly add a futuristic element to the national park, which is said to have been the inspiration behind the planet of Pandora in James Cameron's movie Avatar
