Zhangjiajie’s mountain range is set to become even more dramatic thanks to Martin Duplantier Architects who are set to build a glass bridge that stretches between the famed rock faces. The team who won a competition to create a new showstopping attraction for the Hunan province chose to create an “illusionist development” that would leave guests astounded. This will be the second glass attraction in the area that inspired the film Avatar. The first is the world’s highest and longest glass bridge that was launched in August 2016. The new tourist attraction comprises a bridge, terrace, cafes and guest house the new development is expected to be completed in 2018.
