World’s Longest And Highest Glass-Bottom Bridge Promises Planet’s Highest Bungee Jump!

Earlier this month, the officials of China’s Hunan Province revealed what they believe will be a new “Wonder of the World” – the planet’s longest and highest glass-bottom bridge. When complete, the 430m (1,214 ft) long and 6m wide structure will connect the two summits across the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon. While the length is certainly impressive, it is the 400 m (1,312 ft) height that will have most visitors gripped by fear as they try to traverse across.

For those seeking an extra adrenaline rush there will also be a bungee jump – and not just any ordinary one, but the world’s highest! Situated in the middle of the bridge it promises a leap that is a whopping 60m (197 ft) higher than the current record holder, the AJ Hackett bungee jump from China’s Macau Tower.

The Israeli architectural firm of Haim Dotan that designed the impressive structure asserts that the bridge which will open to the public in October, will be able to accommodate up to 800 people at a time! In addition to being a popular tourist destination, Dotan also envisions it being used as a catwalk for fashion shows.

This is not the first heart-stopping glass structure constructed in China. Earlier this year, the Longgang National Geological Park in Chongqing,unveiled the world’s longest glass-bottomed cantilever skywalk. The $5.6 million USD structure that dangles precariously on the edge of a cliff stretches out an astounding 1,010 m (3,314 ft), offeringstunning views to those that dare to walk on thin air!

Even more terrifying is the Tianmenshan crystal glass skywalk in Zhangjiajie. The 3ft wide 2.5-inch thick walkway that has runs alongside the edge of the mountain sits 4,700 ft above sea level and is defintely not for the faint hearted!

Besides the glass structures, Zhangjiajie, a 56 square-kilometer designated tourist park inside the bigger Wulingyuan Scenic Area has one more claim to fame. It was the inspiration for the breathtaking planet of Pandora in James Cameron’s 2009 blockbuster film, Avatar!

Top 10 Most Remote Places in the World

Thanks to modern technology and air travel, the world is forever becoming a smaller place. Where journeys from one continent to another once took months, they now take hours, and sometimes it seems like there is nowhere left for a would-be adventurer to really get away from it all. Still, if you have the time, money, and know-how, there are still some places off the map—or just barely on it—that remain shrouded in mystery simply by virtue of being really difficult to reach. Whether mining camps at the top of the world, or tiny islands thousands of miles from civilization, the following are the top 10 most remote places left on planet Earth.
