The bridge, which is the longest of its kind in India, offers a breathtaking view of the rolling hills and serene landscapes of Idukki and Kottayam districts.

But that's not all! There's more in store for tourists who crave a bit of privacy with a mix of adventure that'll make your pulse race. Read on!

Dare To Walk On The Glass Bridge & Feel The Thrill?

You can feel the thrill of walking on air as you see the valley below through the transparent glass floor. The glass bridge is made of five layers of 40mm glass imported from Germany and supported by 35 tonnes of steel.

It is located at the Vagamon Adventure Park, with other attractions such as zip-lining, rock climbing, and camping. The glass bridge was inaugurated recently and is open to visitors who want to experience a new level of excitement.
