-- Thrill-seeking tourists or those looking to overcome their fear of heights may be excited to know that the world's longest and highest glass-bottomed bridge will open this July in China.
Visitors can walk across an enormous stretch of transparent panels over the Zhangjiajie
Grand Canyon in Zhangjiajie, Hunan Province, China.
The bridge is more than 1,400 feet long, a 20 feet wide, and nearly 1,000 feet above the ground, according to the
China National Tourist Office. An aerial view of the glass-bottomed bridge across the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon is pictured on June 12, 2016 in Zhangjiajie, Hunan Province of China.
Plans are also in the works to construct a bungee jump from the bridge, for those wishing for an even more terrifying adventure.

This infrastructure project is hopefully sturdier than China's last glass-bottomed overpass.
Another glass-bottomed bridge in China, soaring about 3,280 feet above sea-level, around a cliff on the Yuntai Mountain in the Henan province, reportedly cracked after a tourist dropped a thermos flask on one of the glass panels, Chinese
media reported. The world's longest and highest glass-bottomed bridge stretches over the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon in Zhangjiajie, Hunan Province of China, on June 12, 2016. The bridge is 430 meters long, 6 meters wide, and the biggest vertical drop is 1,430 meters under the path.
