Ordinarily - glass, height and bridge shouldn't even be in the same sentence.

But China is set to change the status quo as there are plans in place by the country to build the world’s highest and longest glass-bottomed bridge.

The Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon skywalk will stand at 980 feet tall and will connect two cliffs in the Zhangjiajie National Park.

As if that isn't intriguing enough, architects plan to make it 1,410 feet long (about .27 miles), so it will be no small 'feet' to walk across.

According to Yahoo Travel, the National Park, which served as inspiration for the backdrop of the movie Avatar, has breathtaking views of more than 3,000 sandstone pillars and other amazing natural formations.

The bridge is set to open in July.
