The suspended bridge is 494 metres long and 86 metres above the ground at its highest point, the
longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world has opened in the Swiss Alps
near the village of Randa.

Stretching across a valley between Grächen and Zermatt, along the
Europaweg foot trail (which sits between 1,600 metres and 2,200 metres above
sea level), hikers crossing the Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge can enjoy
scenic views of some of Switzerland’s highest peaks including the famed Matterhorn as well as the Weisshorn and the Bernese Alps.
The bridge takes
around 10 minutes to walk, cutting down a circuitous journey that previously
took up to four hours.
Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge surpasses the length of the world’s previous longest
glass-bottomed bridge
, unveiled last
year in the Hunan province of southern China. The 430-metre bridge, suspended
300 metres above China’s Zhangjiajie Canyon, allows visitors to peer down into
the abyss through glass panels.
