◆ 3. The Grand Canyon Glass Bridge with glass at the foot
It is not always possible to pass the modern bridge with peace of mind. The bridge is located in Zhangjiajie in Hunan Province, China, which is known as the model of the movie Avatar, with its unique mountain skin and forest. The Grand Canyon Glass Bridge, which is built over the canyon of the city, is made of glass, and allows views of the valley floor from above the bridge. It is whopping 400 meters above the ground and has a thrilling view under its feet. The architect who designed the bridge made such a transparent bridge to blend in with the landscape. Consideration of the landscape has created a place of interest in an unexpected way.

◆ 4. The Aiguille du Midi Bridge overlooking the Alps
France’s Aiguille du Midi Bridge also attracts visitors with its stunning views. Standing in the middle of a short bridge that crosses the summit of the Aiguille du Midi, which is part of the French Alps, you will have a panoramic view of the Alps from all directions. A cable car can reach the bridge about 20 minutes from the base town, making it easy to visit the site without the full climbing equipment. An observatory in a hut at the top of the mountain is also covered by glass, including the feet. You may experience as if you are suspended hanging in the mountains of the Alps and visitor’s courage will be tested.
