World's largest glass bridge in China calls for adventure: See here
New Delhi : Travel buffs, here is something extra-ordinary for you! China has inaugurated the world largest glass bridge in the Gulongxia scenic spot in Qingyuan City. The bridge is installed at 202-meter-high and has already invited visitors to offer the fear of shaking and walking, altogether.
There is a bungee-themed bar and restaurant at the end of the bridge which will allow the visitors to participate by ordering bungee-themed drinks and watch daredevils leap off the bridge.
Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Tourism Management says. "Thanks to the glass-bottom walkway, visitors on the bridge can just look down and see someone bungee jumping.
"It'll be different from the Macau Tower Bungy Jump because bungee-jumping off a bridge doesn't require a guided cable so you'll have the feeling of free-falling."
In the month of May, Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge hosted a Bungee Jump Challenge to promote the tourists attraction.
Bungee enthusiasts from across the world were invited to take a try. Among the lucky jumpers were Ollie Headon of the UK, who has bungee-jumped more than 200 times at more than 20 different bungee sites around the world, and Stephanie Shields, the only female bungee coach in Asia.
The bungee jump is operated by the BungyChina team and Zhangjiajie Retallick Outdoor Sports Co.,Ltd.
The glass bridge has many things to offer. As you take a walk, you will find fake cracks on a vertigo-inducing glass bridge suspended over a valley in Qingyuan City, South China’s Guangdong Province. The structure also features a massive circular glass observation deck suspended at the end of the bridge, jutting out 72 meters from the cliff edge.
The new bungee jumping destination will possibly challenge the current record holder, Macau Tower Bungy Jump, standing at 233 meters (764 feet) above ground.
If you are an adventure lover, then you should plan a visit, at least once in lifetime. What say!
