Bizarre you might call it but I call it guts and novelty. Definitely not a zone for those who are acrophobic. Adventurous travelers will soon be able to walk across the world’s longest and highest glass-bottom bridge, which spans two cliffs in China’s Hunan province.

The bridge which is currently under construction is set against dramatic landscapes in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, the bridge is 430 meters long, six meters wide and hovers over a 300-meter vertical drop.

 

The bridge which was designed by Israeli  architect Haim Dotan was originally expected to be finished at the end of 2015 is now set to open in May this year.

 

It will feature the world’s highest bungee jump and serve as a runway for fashion shows. Hanging above Zhangjiajie Canyon, the bridge  will be able to hold up to 800 people at once.

 

Also, digital renderings of the bridge highlight the architectural  firm’s vision- to build a glass structure that fades into the clouds.
