You don’t have to fly to Canada to walk above the mountains through an imposing glass bridge. Our very own Sikkim has a magnificent glass Skywalk perched above the mist-clad mountains of Pelling. The Skywalk is surrounded by the lofty Himalayas and it overlooks the 137-feet tall marvellous statue of Chenrezig. The Chenrezig statue in Pelling is the fourth tallest statue in Sikkim. The Sikkim Skywalk is India’s very first glass Skywalk. It gives a spectacular view of the Chenrezig statue and the stairs that lead up to it, with golden prayer wheels on both sides.

A Skywalk In The Himalayas With A Glass Bottom

Ever imagined walking on the chilly air above the snow-capped Himalayas? While that’s something beyond possibility, we definitely can wallow in that experience by walking above the glasses. The Sikkim Skywalk with its glass floor was inaugurated in 2018 and since then it has been drawing thousands of tourists. Looking down at the mountains through the glass floor of the towering Skywalk will definitely satiate the adrenaline rushes of every adventurous soul. It is India’s first-ever glass-bottom Skywalk. With the view of the amazing Chenrezig statue, it is perfect for some awe-inspiring photoshoots. Along with the statue and its stairs, the bridge gives a breathtaking panoramic view of the mountainous region. A swanky glass Skywalk will also come up in Hyderabad soon.
