The bridge was opened to the public in September 2020 and in a very short time became an attraction of this Chinese region. It quickly gained enormous popularity, as more than 200,000 people visited it in less than three months. This engineering masterpiece has attracted the bravest to experience the thrill of standing 140 meters above the ground on the glass bridge and enjoying the beauty of the Shenxianju Valley.
