This walkway is not for the faint of heart. The transparent horseshoe-shaped cantilever bridge at the Yunyang Longgang Geological Park in Chongqing will be opened to the general public in May.

With a total investment of more than 35 million yuan ($5.6 million), the skywalk is built at an altitude of 1,123 meters, with a vertical drop of 718m directly under the skywalk to the ground.

The bridge has a cantilever extending to 26.64 meters, five meters longer than the world famous Grand Canyon Skywalk in Arizona near the Colorado River.
