If you wish to break free from fear of heights, then it is better to embrace oneself while walking on the glass bridge in Zhangjiaejie Grand Canyon, China. In some way, you will be familiar with the untouched place if ever you had watched the Avatar movie. The difference, the Avatar is being animated and the mountains of Zhangjiaejie Grand Canyon is in reality. Visitors from different places inspired to walk in the world’s highest and longest glass-bottom bridge. It is really a breathtaking moment. It was noted that the volume of people flock to the place and limited only on a daily basis.
There are all types of bridges around the world, but in China, there is one that has already set a number of records. We’re talking about the Zhangjiajie gla...

I doubt that you know what you're talking about. Obviously, you don't suffer from vertigo. @LadyDuck I'm with you. I won't watch the video. It would make me sick.

@Shavkat tiresome? You mean they fall asleep? I would be too afraid to nod off. Specially under it.

I had a travel to Zhangjiajie before. Of course at that time this glass bridge was not available. It will be a challenge to walk on it. I know how the mountains look like there.

@Shavkat Perhaps it sounds crazy. But now I think traveling in China is even much more expensive than overseas.

800 people on the bridge at one time I could not handle that. It is beautiful and I am sure a sight to see but I don't think I could do it. It is truly fascinating though.

Recently, I had read that the volume had increase to 8000. It seems a bit crowded.

If we are on the transparent bridge, I think I will feel drowsy.

and because of the demand of tourist flocking the area to step the glass bridge end to end the Chinese authority decided to close it 13 days after it was officially opened...probably the volume of tourist that will step on the bridge on a particular time will result in the collapse of the glass bridge. i would like to try it someday soon though.

I think that's the reason why they need to limit the people who can visit the bridge. I hope I can also try to do bungee jumping here.

I've seen videos of people (and sometimes their pets) trying to walk across the bridge... It's hilarious at times but I really pity them with their look on their faces... It's amazing to see them trying to let a car cross it too... pretty durable...

I think it would be neat to look down and walk across that bridge.
