China Builds Longest and Highest Glass Bridge

Why is China obsessed with building sky-high glass bridge?

Invisible? You go first.

Indiana Jones' next movie set! Call me a cynic, and this may be a shot in the dark here, but if i really really really concentrate and screw my eyes up I can actually just make out the shape of the invisible blended-in bridge.

Thrill seekers rejoice - China is building yet another terrifying glass-bottomed bridge in its 'Avatar' mountains.

It was only in August that the Chinese unveiled the world's longest and highest glass bridge in the Hunan province, but now architects have gone one further.

They've designed an 'invisible' bridge that's spectacular and scary in equal measure.

Why is China obsessed with building sky-high glass bridge

China Builds the Worlds Longest and Highest Glass Bridge in the Mountains That Inspired the Hollywood Movie Avatar

The incredible structure is designed to blend in with the landscape of the mountains of Zhangjiajie.

The transparent footbridge, suspended high between two mountain-tops, will cost over 4 million pounds to build and has been created by Martin Duplantier Architectes (MDA) and Daqian Landscape Architects, who won a design competition.

It will be built using mirrored stainless steel and the floor will be made of black stone that becomes reflective when wet, according to MiniDaily.com.

The idea is that the structure mirrors the environment and gives the optical illusion of blending into thin air -definitely making it unsuitable for those scared of heights.

The bridge will be made up of two layers, however, so there are some options for nervous visitors. The upper level that connects the two rock faces is in the shape of an elliptical disk and doesn't have a see-through floor. A winding black stone path leads intrepid explorers from one peak to the other.

Surrounding the path is a layer of water two centimetres thick, which is sprayed onto it every seven minutes by nozzles creating a temporary cloud and mist between the mountains. The floor is 100 per cent glass, allowing brave visitors to gaze at the void below.

China to build yet ANOTHER terrifying sky-high glass bridge in the 'Avatar' mountains - and this time it's 'invisible'. Don't look down! The terrifying see-through path stuck to a Chinese cliff-face 4,000ft above a rocky ravine. Don't look down: A brave tourist walks along the glass path that was built of the side of a cliff 4,700ft above sea level on Tianmen Mountain in Zhangjiajie, China. It is certainly not a path for the faint-hearted. Now where are my roller blades?

Trees can and do grow on the sides of mountains, and people walk there too! Now upon glass pathways! Brilliant stuff, I would love to experience that. I gave up climbing at 14, perhaps if there was plenty of scaffolding work about I could have learnt the skills to build paths upon the sides of cliffs! How I yearn to get out of the office and back into the physical work!

The £4million bridge is designed to blend perfectly into its surroundings in China's Hunan province. The transparent bridge is in the mountains that inspired the Hollywood film Avatar. 

In August the Chinese unveiled the world's longest and highest glass bridge in Hunan province. Now architects have gone one further by designing an 'invisible' bridge that blends into the surroundings. As well as walking across the see-through bridge you can spend the night in a pavilion perched on the rocks. And if that is not enough to bring terror into the pit of your stomach, the path running alongside a Chinese mountainside is made out of glass, allowing a crystal-clear view of where one false step can take you.

Worlds Longest Glass Bridge China

The "Wild China" TV series shows that China has some stunningly beautiful places that are almost totally unknown to the West. Consider this: China is one of the biggest, most populous countries in the world, yet, outside of Beijing and Shanghai, how many Chinese cities can you name? I've only ever been once, but I'd love to see more.
