Georgia’s new 240-meter-long tourism attraction may be reserved mainly for thrill-seekers.
The bridge suspended above Dashbashi Canyon, two hours by drive from Tbilisi may tempt you to stop for a drink and take in the scenery at the massive diamond multi-level bar at its center, or to ride across on a zip line-attached bicycle.
“At the same time, it’s amazing and insane. It’s sturdy, and it’s not going anywhere “Gal Gvaral said this after casually pedaling while dangling 280 meters over the canyon.
The government sought to attract thrill-seeking tourists who enjoy outdoor adventures while also supporting the natural environment.
The bridge was built over three years at a cost of €37 million by the Georgian-Israeli Kass investment group.
The bridge’s proprietors claim it is the world’s longest and tallest free-hanging construction.
Paths to the canyon and its waterfalls, panoramic vistas, a big swing, as well as cottages and a hotel, are all part of the complex.
The Tsalka nature reserve, where the bridge is located, is still relatively obscure on the tourist circuit, but investors are hoping that this eye-catching feature will draw more people.
“This is one of the most stunning resorts we’ve ever created,” says Yossi Tenery, a representative of the ISSTA Group, Israel’s largest tourist company.
“We hope a large number of people come to see, touch, smell, and enjoy this work of art.”
