World’s Longest Glass Bridge Opens In China, 590-Feet Above The Ground

This is the longest glass-bottomed bridge, that just opened in China. The world’s longest glass-bottomed walkway, is located in Shiniuzhai Geopark in Hunan, it connects the two peaks of Stone Buddha Mountain and spans 300m (984f) and is 180m (590f) above ground. The floor is made of double-layered glass that is 24mm (0.94in), and is reportedly 25 times stronger than regular window glass. The bridge had previously been made of wood, linking the two peaks of Stone Buddha Mountain, but 11 engineers working 12 hours a day converted it to glass.
