Glass Lookout in French Alps: Step into the Void skywalk


For anyone with height issues, “Step into the Void” is not the tourist attraction for you. But it’s something most of your friends have never done, that’s almost a given: stand in a glass room that hangs over the French Alps. It’s a glass cage really, and it’s 12,604 feet high. That’s right, about 2.5 miles. So hold onto your heart when you step out – it’s bound to leap into your throat. But oh, the view! The location of the cage is at the Aiguille du Midi peak, part of the Mont Blanc range in south-east France. It was inspired by the “Skywalk”, a glass walkway over the Grand Canyon in Arizona. And it’s a four-season attraction, able to withstand both high and low temperatures as well as high winds. Standing in the void on the glass floor, with three glass sides and a glass ceiling, gives those who dare a sense of free-falling in space. Along with a whole lot of unforgettable!


It’s a free-falling feeling!
