The world’s longest and highest glass-bottomed bridge has opened to visitors in central China.

Completed in December, the 430m-long bridge cost $3.4m to build and stands 300m above ground.

It connects two mountain cliffs in what are known as the Avatar mountains in Zhangjiajie, Hunan province. In case you are wondering, the Avatar movies were shot there.

The bridge has been paved with 99 panes of three-layered transparent glass.

And according to officials, the 6m-wide bridge – designed by Israeli architect Haim Dotan – has already set world records for its architecture and construction.
