A glass-bottom skywalk, believed to have the longest cantilever in the world, in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality opened to public on April 1.

A glass-bottom skywalk, believed to have the longest cantilever in the world, in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality opened to public on April 1.

The A-shaped bridge extends 86 meters from the cliff wall, and hangs more than 200 meters above ground level at Wansheng Ordovician Theme Park.

Only 30 people can be on the skywalk at one time.

During last week's three-day Qingming Festival holiday, nearly 10,000 tourists from across China visited the bridge.

"My heart nearly jumped out of my chest when I stood on the bridge. It's so exhilarating," said tourist Li Jing from Chongqing.

"We will apply to the Guinness world record committee for the longest cantilever bridge, to make it more attractive to tourists," said Tang Nan, president of the park.

It is not the first cantilever glass bridge in the city. In 2015, a horseshoe-shaped, glass-bottom cantilever bridge with a 26-meter overhang opened to the public at Yunyang Longgang Geological Park.
