Guangdong's highest circular glass bridge has opened to the public at the Huangtengxia tourist attraction(清远黄腾峡生态旅游区), just one hour and 30 minutes' drive from downtown Guangzhou.

Supported by three huge steel pillars, the glass bridge looks like two tennis rackets crossed on the mountain—it is also known as the "big rackets". It extends 368 meters out from a cliff and is 500 meters high, which is equivalent to the height of a 166-floor building and is only 100 meters lower than the Canton Tower.

 

 

 

 

 

When tourists walk on the glass bridge gingerly, they may suddenly hear the sound of broken glass, look down, and notice in horror that cracks are beginning to appear in the glass under their feet! But don't be afraid, this is the bridge's special glass breaking effect, which can create a terrifying fright for visitors.

Under the bridge are fast-flowing rivers and deep canyons, allowing tourists to experience an exciting "sky walk".

 

 

 

The bridge's design team installed 450 water nozzles and 2,000 electronic lights on the outermost circular bridge, creating the world's largest circular music waterfall with a total circumference of 168 meters. When darkness falls, people can enjoy a spectacular light show with beautiful sounds.
