Don’t crack it! Worlds longest glass bottom bridge opens in Hunan, China

bridge glass chinaThe record breaking bridge is 430 metres (1,400 ft) long and hangs 300 metres (1,000 ft) above the earth, suspended between two mountain cliffs in Zhangjiajie park.

The bridge is designed by Israeli architect Haim Dotan with visitors crossing 99 panels of clear glass to reach the opposite cliff.

Eight hundred people can fit on the bridge at one time with only 8,000 allowed to cross the bridge each day.

The park in China’s central Hunan province is a popular tourist destination and authorities in Zhangjiajie also plan to offer bungee jumping for the bravest visitors.

But is it safe, looking at what appears to be a big crack in the glass panel straight behind the young boy!!
