Hello Travellers, adrenaline junkies, China is about to build a terrifying glass-bottomed bridge in its ‘Avatar’ mountains.
Spectacular and scary in equal measure, the ‘invisible’ bridge is designed to blend in with the landscape of the mountains of Zhangjiajie.
The transparent footbridge, suspended high between two mountain-tops, will cost over £4million to build and has been created by Martin Duplantier Architectes (MDA) and Daqian Landscape Architects, who won a design competition. Daily Mail reported.
It will be built using mirrored stainless steel and the floor will be made of black stone that becomes reflective when wet, according to Designboom.com.
The idea is that the structure mirrors the environment and gives the optical illusion of blending into thin air -definitely making it unsuitable for those scared of heights.
The bridge will be made up of two layers, however, so there are some options for nervous visitors.
The pavilions, stacked on top of each other, all offer incredible views but none so much as the rooftop, with its 360-degree panorama.
A café is positioned at the middle level and below that are exclusive VIP suites that allow select guests to spend the night overlooking the picturesque landscape. Daily Mail added.
Zhangjiajie is already home to the world’s longest and tallest glass bridge so the spot is quickly becoming a destination for adrenaline junkies.
