A skywalk above the French Alps
If you plan to conquer your fear of heights in the near future, head on over to the French Alps and do it like the French. Located atop the Aiguille du Midi mountain is a glass structure that peers out over the ledge, letting you walk over and see the kilometre long drop. It’s called the Chamonix Skywalk, and it’s a new attraction open to tourists who want to have a really thrilling vacation, to say the least.
Journalists were the first to test out the glass cube and their bravery. They wore slippers to minimize chances of breaking the half-inch thick glass floor (wouldn’t want to risk that, do we?) The structure took three years to build and can withstand 136mph winds. The Chamonix Skywalk was said to have been inspired by the Grand Canyon’s glass skywalk. Any takers, anyone? Anyone?
