China opens longest glass-bottomed bridge

      The world’s highest and longest glass-bottomed bridge has opened in China’s spectacular Zhangjiajie mountains – the inspiration for American block buster Avatar. Measuring 430m (1,400ft) long and suspended 300m above the ground, the bridge spans the canyon between two mountain cliffs in Zhangjiajie park in China’s central Hunan province.

       Six metres wide and made of 99 panels of clear glass, the bridge can carry up to 800 people at the same time, an official in Zhangjiajie– a popular tourist destination – told the Xinhua news agency.Tourists can walk across the bridge, designed by Israeli architect Haim Dotan who has already set world records for its architecture and construction.
How safe is it?
The more adventurous will be able to bungee jump or ride a zip line. Following an alarming glass bridge cracking incident at the Yuntai mountain in northern Henan in 2015, authorities in Zhangjiajie were eager to demonstrate the safety of the structure.

        They organised a string of media events, including one where people were encouraged to try and smash the bridge’s glass panels with a sledge hammer, and another where they drove a car across it. “It’s crowded today and a bit of a mess. But to be suspended 300 metres in the air, it’s a unique experience,” said a visitor who had come to see the bridge with his colleagues. Only 8,000 people each day will be allowed to cross the bridge and tourists will have to book their tickets a day in advance, at a cost of 138 yuan ($20). People wearing stilettos will be banned.

The year of glass bridges
Glass bridges in China have been a popular craze for the daring photo opportunities they provide. Events like mass yoga displays and even weddings have been staged on several such bridges.
One couple celebrated their special day by dangling in mid-air from a bridge in Pingjiang, also located in Hunan province.

       Local authorities have said that one of the summits in Zhangjiajie Park inspired the floating mountain which appears in the American blockbuster Avatar. A Hollywood photographer visited the area in 2008, taking images which were used for the film, according to media reports.
