This glass 100-meter bridge is one and a half meters wide at an altitude of 1.5 kilometers leads to the horror of even the Chinese themselves – walk on semi-bent. Trail is located on Mount Tianmene. Design, of course, reliable, but still scary to look into the abyss under the legs.

Another transparent track, but already over one of the deepest canyons in the world. 1 200 with a small meter over the precipice, fully transparent floor, and the bridge sticks out an arc 20 meters from the edge of the canyon – adrenaline is guaranteed to jum. But you don’t have to eat tightly before her visit.

On the Alps nice to look from either side, because they are unique. The observation deck is interesting that: In addition to the suspended bridge there is a small glass balcony for two people a maximum.
