The bridge is in the spectacular Zhangjiajie mountains (which inspired the ‘floating mountain’ in the film Avatar). To demonstrate the safety of the structure, visitors were encouraged to try and smash the bridge’s glass panels with a sledge hammer. The bridge includes a bungee jump and a ride on a zip line.
