China:

I’m sure that once we can all travel again, we will rush to book a bungee jump. Did you know the highest bungee jump is 260 meters deep and takes place from a glass bottom bridge?
 
Amazing, right? (and scary).
 
Do you know where we need to travel in order to do this jump?
 
For a long time it was indeed Bloukrans in South Africa, that was the highest commercial bridge bungy at 216 metres (709 ft) above the Bloukrans River. In fact, Mohr Keet set a Guinness World Record as the oldest person to bungy jump when he jumped from Bloukrans Bridge on 6 April 2010 at the age of 96.
 
Macau then had the pleasure of having the highest bungee jump – Macau Tower, China at 233 metres. In 2016, a 430-metre-long glass-bottom bridge in China’s Hunan Province, became home to the world’s highest bungee jump.
 
This stunning piece of architecture spans a vast canyon 300 metres deep, in the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park.
 
From the Zhangjiajie Bridge you can also get a glimpse of its UNESCO World Heritage area – the greater Wulingyuan Scenic Area that it is part of.
