China is becoming more and more synonymous with architectural wonders. They continue to push the envelope, and the world continues to talk about what the Chinese are going to do next.

The national park of Zhangjiajie in China’s Hunan province is doing something some might say is a bit crazy…

That is, building a 1,247-foot-long, 20-foot-wide glass bottom bridge, that will be 984-feet-high and connect to monstrous cliffs.

Not only will the bridge be the world’s longest, as well as highest, glass bottom bridge, it’s setting in the national park of Zhangjiajie is rumored to be the inspiration behind planet Pandora in Avatar.

It’s safe to assume that this unique bridge will only add to the luster of China’s Hunan province.

Designed by Israeli architect Haim Dotan, the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge is set to be completed in July, and will eventually feature the world’s highest bungee jump.

The bridge, set to officially open in October, will be able to hold upwards of 800 people at a time.

I’m not sure if I would want to walk across that thing by myself, let alone with hundreds of strangers!
