The glass bridge built-in line with China’s Hangzhou province glass bridge will be 85 feet in length and 6 feet in width and can accommodate 40 visitors at a time.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on December 19 visited Rajgir to inspect the progress of the 'nature safari' work being carried out there. It is one of the dream projects of the Janata Dal (United) (JDU) leader.
The glass bridge will be a part of the nature safari that is being developed in 500 acres of the historical Budh Marg. There will be around 18 glass covered cabins in the new ropeway, each with 8 tourists that will cover 750 meters in five minutes.
