A bridge too far? China set to open the most terrifying walkway in the world, 

stretching a quarter-of-a-mile across a canyon at a dizzying height of 980​ ​ft ... and 

it's made of GLASS

  • The Zhangjiajie skywalk is set to open in July hovering over a 980​ ​ft drop

​​

If you are terrified of heights you would be advised to stay 

well away from China 's latest attraction.

The Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon skywalk will hover over a nail-biting 980ft drop and

 is set to smash records to be the world's longest and highest glass-bottomed bridge.

​ ​

The dizzying footbridge, which spans between two cliffs in the national park

 of Zhangjiajie , will be open to brave tourists in July.

The dizzying walkway is suspended between two cliffs in the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon area with

 unbeatable views of the national park





There are even plans to hold fashions shows along the sky-high pathway, which has unbeatable views of the 

national park that was the inspiration for the planet Pandora in the movie Avatar.

Israeli architect Haim Dotan was behind the ambitious venture, which will easily dwarf

 America's Grand Canyon Skywalk which sits 718

​ ​

ft above ground measuring 68ft long.

The terrifying platform is no quick stroll, stretching a whopping 1410ft above the impressive Hunan province scenery

Visitors will be able to marvel at the stunning Zhangjiajie national park landscape, which

 boasts over 3,000 sandstone pillars, and was the inspiration for James Cameron's 2009 movie, Avatar

For tourists who catch the adrenaline bug from completing the transparent walkway, 

there will also be the opportunity to try the world's highest bungee jump.

This record-breaking bungee will snatch the title from 

Macau Tower 's 764ft-high attraction.

Last month a similarly scary walkway opened in south-west China in Chongqing , 

which extended 87.5ft from the edge of a cliff.

Visitors are suspended in the air with 2,350ft of valley below their feet, leaving them

 feel as though they are walking on air. 





Located in the Longgang National Geological Park , the bridge has been named

 Yuanduan, meaning ‘at the end of the clouds’

With jaw-dropping panoramic views from its observation deck,

 it is the longest cantilever bridge in the world





The park is limiting it to just 30 people at a time to ensure visitors have plenty of room to enjoy the view
