China’s Epic Glass Bridge Suddenly Closes 13 Days After Opening

China’s record-breaking glass bridge closed just 13 days after its opening, upsetting thousands of visitors.

The world’s highest and longest glass-bottomed bridge suspended over China’s Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon opened to the public on August 20. The six-meter-wide bridge is 430 meters long and made up of 99 glass panels. Nestled between two cliffs in Zhangjiajie Park, the bridge offers spectacular views of the canyon that is believed to have inspired scenery in the sci-fi movie “Avatar.”
