The magnificent bridge is 488 meters long and two meters wide, with two dragon statues on top that could produce smoke.

It connects the two steep cliffs in Hongyagu Scenic Area in Pingshan county.

It is paved with 1,077 panes of transparent glass, each 4 centimeters thick, and weighs a total of 70 metric tons.

The bridge is 2 meter wide and hangs 218 meter above the valley floor. That makes it about 66-storey high.

Though it has a capacity to hold 2000 people, only 500 would be allowed at a time.

The sky bridge is designed to swing a little while visitors walk to its center, creating a thrill for visitors, according to Hebei Bailu Group, the local tourism company that built the bridge.

Hikers crossing the new skywalk, which can withstand even the strongest winds, will be able to enjoy spectacular views of Hongyagu, which boasts a unique landscape with mountains, natural waterfalls, ancient towns and temples.

Hongyagu’s new bridge is not the first record-setting crossing for China. The structure measuring 430 meters in length and 6 meters wide suspended 300 meters above, was opened to the public on August 20, 2016 in the Grand Canyon Scenic Area in Zhangjiajie, China. It was considered the world’s longest glass-bottomed bridge at the time.
