Hebei, China: The unique styled bridge that boasts to be world’s longest glass bridge in China opens to the public today. Though it has a capacity to hold 2000 people, only 500 would be allowed at a time.

Located in Shijiazhuang, the magnificent bridge lies 218 meters above hanging between the two cliffs in Hongyagu Scenic Area in Pingshan county.

The bridge is 488 meters long and two meters wide, with two dragon statues on top that could produce smoke. In addition to its marvellous design, the bridge is constructed with 1,077 panes of transparent glass with each being four centimetres thick, quotes India.com.

Those who dare to do something adventurous shall definitely go up there, as it swings in the air while people walk in the centre of it.

Another 430 meters long and 6 meters wide bridge was opened last year in the Grand Canyon Scenic Area in Zhangjiajie, Hunan province, which is temporarily closed after a huge influx of tourists.
