Watch: World’s Longest Glass-Bottomed Bridge Designed by Israeli Architect Opens


China opened the world’s highest and longest glass-bottomed bridge this past weekend. The bridge was designed by Israeli architect Chaim Dotan.

The bridge is 20 feet wide, 1,410 feet long, and hangs 1,000 feet high above a ravine in Zhangjiajie National Park in Hunan province.

It is fitted with 99 huge three-layer glass panes through which visitors can glimpse the drop below.

To prove the bridge is entirely safe, in June Chinese officials staged an event in which a glass pane was repeatedly bashed with sledgehammers, then driven over with a car full of passengers. The glass held.

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