Another visitor (Mandarin): "It’s awesome!"

The world longest glass-bottomed bridge was unveiled at the Hongyagu scenic area, Hebei province, Friday.

Although the construction was designed for 3,000 visitors, only 600 people can cross the bridge at any one time. The 488-metre (1,601 ft) long bridge hangs 218 metres (715 ft) above the valley between two steep cliffs, which is roughly equal to a 66-floor building. To emphasise the suspense, the bridge wobbles as people walk along its glass panels.

In order to reach the bridge, visitors need to climb up 2,000 stairs, but an elevator is already under construction to facilitate access.

El puente de 488 metros (1.601 pies) de largo cuelga a 218 metros (715 pies) sobre el valle entre dos acantilados, que es equivalente a un edificio de 66 pisos. Para enfatizar el suspenso, el puente se tambalea mientras la gente camina a lo largo de sus paneles de vidrio.

Para llegar al puente, los visitantes deben subir 2,000 escaleras, pero ya se está construyendo un elevador para facilitar el acceso.
