The 430-meter bridge tucked between two steep cliffs is 300
meters above the ground.
To further convince the public of the bridge’s sturdiness,
20 volunteers to used hammers to try to smash the glass, before an all-terrain
vehicle carried 11 volunteers across the cracking glass. Another team of 10
volunteers then tried again to smash the glass.
Despite some fractures on the surface, the glass did not
break.

The bridge is made of three layers of the tempered glass,
all together 99 pieces, each of 3 by 4.5 meters and 15 mm thick. Damaged pieces
can be removed and changed.

The unique pillar-like mountain formation in Zhangjiajie
appeared in the Hollywood blockbuster movie “Avatar.” The Grand
Canyon Scenic Area in Zhangjiajie received more than 1.2 million visitors from
home and abroad in 2015.
