China has unveiled yet another new, terrifyingly-high glass bottom bridge in Chongqing Municipality in the country's southwest. This breathtaking walkway seems to be modeled after the renowned Grand Canyon Skywalk near the Colorado River in the U.S., as its designers have said.

Called “Sky Corridor,” the A-shaped walkway juts out 80 meters from a cliff and is the second of its kind at the Wansheng Mountain Scenic Area, hanging above another cantilever bridge.

The “Sky Corridor” is submitting an application to the Guinness Book of World Records for the title of the world's longest cantilever bridge.

The walkway has already attracted numerous daredevils since opening on Saturday – just ahead of China's three-day-long Qingming Festival holiday. Visitors flocked for a heart-throbbing, hair-rising and mind-blowing experience, which they could definitely brag about on their social media accounts.
