Can you imagine standing several thousand feet above the ground? I guess it would feel a bit like taking a walk in the clouds!

The world’s highest cantilevered glass bridge was completed in China earlier this year, and is now officially open to visitors.

Located in the scenic region of Longgang in Yunyang, Chongqing, the horseshoe-shaped walkway is about 11 feet wide, and 164 feet long, and was built on the edge of a steep cliff. And it’s 2,355 feet above ground or 3,684 feet above sea level.

The opening ceremony was held on April 26, with over 30 ladies wearing traditional dresses from various dynasties, like the Han, Tang, Ming, and Qing, creating a strange mixture of ancient and modern.

Two professional parachutists also took part in the event, according to qq.com.

Base jumping off the world’s highest skywalk would be awesome!

Well, I guess most of us would never have the chance or courage to do that, but just standing so high up in this magnificent landscape surrounded by nature would be pretty amazing!
