China has all set to open the most frightening walkway in the world, stretching a quarter-of-a-mile across a canyon at a dizzying height of 980ft and it's made of “GLASS”. Well it is highly recommended to stay away if you’re terrified of heights.  China latest attraction The Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon skywalk will hover over a nail-biting 980ft drop and is set to smash records to be the world longest and highest glass-bottomed bridge. The terrifying footbridge, which spans between two cliffs in the national park of Zhangjiajie, will be open to valiant tourists in July. Moreover, the frightening platform is no quick stroll, stretching a whopping 1,410ft above the inspiring Hunan province scenery. Therefore, those who fright the bridge will give way need not worry, as the 19ft-wide bridge is able to hold 800 visitors at a time. The further plans to arrange a fashion shows along the sky-high pathway, which has peerless views of the national park that was the stimulation for the planet Pandora in the movie Avatar. The ambitious venture will easily dwarf United State Grand Canyon Skywalk which sits 718 feet above the ground measuring 68 feet long. Israeli architect Haim Dotan was behind this mega project and those tourists who catch the adrenaline bug from completing the transparent walkway, there’ll also be the opportunity to try the world's highest bungee jump.

A similar scary walkway opened in south-west China in Chongqing last month, which was extended 87.5ft from the edge of a cliff. Tourists are suspended in the air with 2,350ft of valley below their feet, leaving them feel as though they are walking on air.  Source: Dailymail
