China's latest architectural feat is not for the faint of heart--especially those with a fear of heights. Officially opened to the public over the past weekend, the glass-bottomed bridge that hangs over the Zhang Jiajie mountains in Hunan is about 20 ft wide and spans 1,400 ft long.
The glass bridge is suspended about 1,000 ft above a canyon sheer drop in between the mountains that inspired the otherworldly cinematography in the blockbuster movie AVATAR.
Opening day saw a whopping crowd of 8,000 people flocking to witness the jaw-dropping structure--at many points, the people traffic was so dense that the glass floors were barely discernible!
The bridge has a max capacity of 800 people, but if you are worried about the bridge floor shattering right beneath your feet--rest assured--
The bridge's engineers were so confident of the structure's integrity that they tested it with the force of multiple sledgehammers, then ran a fully loaded SUV over it!
What a wonder--talk about literally standing in the clouds!!
