In China a glass bridge was opened at an altitude of 700 meters
However, this is not the only place in the world where you can hang over the precipice.
In the Chinese city Chongqing it is now possible to walk over the abyss. It is a glass platform, opened to tourists, which has already received the nickname “Bridge in the clouds,” according to Daily Mail.
The platform with the length of just over 26 meters is located at an altitude of 700 meters. It has the shape of a horseshoe, so that local authorities hope to use it to fashion shows and performances.
“Bridge in the clouds” can accommodate up to 200 people, and tourists can visit it up to the limit of 30 minutes. During a tour the travelers will have to pay about $ 10.
Chinese “attraction” has become the world’s largest cantilever bridge, bypassing “Heaven trail” over the Grand Canyon in the list. Lookout platform Skywalk in Arizona was opened in spring 2007. Then, the astronaut Buzz Aldrin – the second man to walk on the moon, was the first in the corridor with a transparent bottom. As its Chinese counterpart, the bridge was built with a large margin of safety and can withstand an earthquake up to 8 on the Richter scale.
You can hover over the abyss, and in other parts of the United States. For example, entering one of the four glass balconies in the tallest skyscraper Chicago Willis Tower. Located at an altitude of 103 floors. All-glass frames are made of heavy-duty material and can accommodate up to five people. On a clear day from this area you can see as many as four states: Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana.
You also can go over the precipice, not limited with the parapet, but with insurance on the observation deck SkyWalk of a skyscraper Sky Tower in Auckland. Heavenly walk is not a cheap pleasure. It will cost $ 145, but for the money, tourists will be allowed even to lean over down.http://www.aztourstravel.com/in-china-a-glass-bridge-was-opened-at-an-altitude-of-700-meters/AsiaChinaChinese city Chongqing
