A glass bridge in China has been named the longest in the world.
The bridge crosses the river to welcome local tourists from earlier this month.
Quoted from Travel + Leisure, the glass bridge set a world record by stretching 526 meters, hanging at an altitude of about 201 meters, above the Lianjiang River.
The bridge offers a beautiful view of the three gorges of Huangcuan in Southern China.
The glass bridge was designed by the Zhengjiang University Architectural Design and Research Institute as a tourist attraction.
About 8 meters wide, tourists can stop for a moment to take photos as they pass through the terrible glass road.
The bottom of the glass on the glass bridge in China consists of three layers of laminated tempered glass 4.5 cm thick.
The glass is really designed to be see-through, so tourists crossing the bridge can feel the sensation of walking on a flowing river.
They can also see boats that may be crossing the river.
According to Dezeen, the glass bridge in China can accommodate up to 500 people at a time.
The guardrail is made of stainless steel.
The bridge construction was completed in early 2020.
Guinness World Records officially recognized this new destination as the world’s longest glass bridge at the beginning of this summer.
According to the BBC, there are more than 2,300 glass bridges in China.
New projects are constantly fighting for the title of biggest, longest and most terrifying.
In 2016, the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge became the longest in the world at 429 meters.
But unfortunately, the bridge had to be closed two weeks after it opened due to booming tourist arrivals.
Then, in 2017, the Hongyagu suspension bridge beat the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon glass bridge with a length of 467 m.
