Located in in Hunan's Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, this Chinese tourist attraction is already home to the longest glass-bottomed bridge. But that isn't stopping them from building another one for thrill-seekers.

While the current 100-meter long skywalk hovers 4,600 feet above the ground, the newly planned bridge will be shorter but possibly even scarier. Shaped like an elliptical disk, the bridge would be made from reflective stainless steel and water-covered black stone so that the structure mirrors the environment and appears to disappear into its surroundings. If that's not enough, it has an off-centered hole that allows views below into the gap between the rock faces. Plus, there's a bridge beneath the bridge that has a completely transparent bottom.

Martin Duplantier Architectes also has stacked pavilions planned for the "Avatar"-like mountains that will feature panoramic views, a cafe, and a VIP suite.
