Israeli architect Haim Dotan designed this recently opened and imposing glass walkway that stretches across China's Grand Canyon of Zhangjiajie.

Made out of plexiglass less than an inch thick, this glass suspension bridge is located in China’s Shiniuzhai National Geological Park in the Hunan Province, and stretches 900 feet across a magnificent canyon view that sits at a vertigo-inducing 600 feet below. Recently opened to tourists, the glass walkway that rests between the two cliff faces reportedly even sways slightly in the wind.

Originally a wooden walkway with glass inserts, this newly updated design has become a popular test of courage due to its imposing view and impressive scale. The transparent walkway is reportedly capable of supporting approximately 800 visitors at a time, and plans are even being made to make the bridge the world's highest bungee jump as well.
