The Fish River canyon is one of the most impressive natural beauties in the southern part of Namibia. With a depth of up to 550 metres, the Fish River Canyon is the second largest canyon in the world. The enormous gorge meanders along a distance of approx. 160 kilometres through the fissured Koubis massif all the way down to Ai-Ais. The canyon starts near Seeheim. It is 161 kilometres long and up to 27 km wide and ends at Ai-Ais. The canyon is over 500 million years old, with part of the strata formed as far back as 650 million years ago. The area has become a very popular hiking destination over the years, which includes the well-known Fish River Hiking Trail. The trail is a 4-day activity covering 86 km in total. Hiking trips are available from May to September

Glass Bottom Skywalk in Grand Canyon, Arizona

Share/Bookmark

The Grand Canyon Skywalk is a glass transparent horseshoe-shaped cantilever bridge and tourist attraction in Arizona near the Colorado River, located on the edge of a side canyon in the Grand Canyon West area of the main canyon. Visitors on the Skywalk, which has a clear, 4-inch-thick glass bottom, peer over the railing, or down through their stance to see the Canyon and all of its 4,000 feet of vertical abyss. Although its weight capacity is stated to be 70 tons, permitted capacity is limited to just 120 people at a time. Visitors must wear special “booties” over their shoes so as not to damage or scuff the glass bottom.
