The world’s longest glass-bottomed cantilever skywalk has been opened to tourists at the Longgang National Geological Park, Chongqing, China. The stunning walkway stretches an impressive 26.64 m (87.4 ft) into thin air, offering a breathtaking vista of the landscape.

Built atop a cliff edge at the dizzying altitude of 1,010 m (3,314 ft), the walkway cost the Chinese government 35 million yuan (US$5.6 million) to construct and is a full 5 m (16 ft) longer than the iconic Grand Canyon Skywalk in Arizona. Read more here..
