The world’s highest bungee jump is here!
China is yet again creating history by bringing up new experiences. The Hunan province in China has introduced the highest bungee jump in the world.
This adventure will let you dangle between two cliffs from a 430 m glass-bottomed suspension bridge.
Thrill-seekers can give this a try and leap of faith to the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge from a height of 260 m.
It offers an amazing adventure along with mesmerizing views of the surrounding Wulingyuan wilderness, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Wulingyuan region was already quite popular among international tourists for its quartzite sandstone pillars. And now this gorges here will transport you to a magical world.
The bungee jumping operation in the province began at the end of 2020. But the project was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, as the Chinese government had imposed several restrictions.
Jonni Deaker was the operator of the bungee jumping. He said that the business was building slowly after the domestic tourists began turning up.
Further, he said: “We are probably averaging twenty jumps a day at the moment, which is pretty good for a jump this size.”
He also informed that he was not sure if people would visit the region during the July-August holiday season. The cost of the sport has decreased by 40 per cent.
Haim Dotan is a famous Israeli architect who designed the pedestrian bridge.
It was inaugurated in August 2016 and was once the longest glass-bottomed suspension bridge in the world.
Jumping into the void below might be petrifying for some, but Deaker believes the utter height makes it less scary than smaller jumps.
“Because it’s so high, it actually makes it easier”, Deaker said. “When you’re this high, it’s kind of like skydiving.”
This place will definitely give much-needed thrills to the adventure junkies as jumping into the abyss is not everyone’s cup of tea!
