So this is the rock that says :Oryukdo Skywalk...I hope!
It was getting very windy and the wind was playing tricks with my hair.
To get to the Skywalk we had to walk here first , because the bridge is over a 35 meter high cliff.
This is the cliff and below is how the bridge looks like
So now you know why it is called the skybridge!!!
The construction of Oryukdo Skywalk finished on September 12, 2012 at the Seungdumal area, which is regarded as the dividing point between the East Sea and the South Sea, and started operating on October 18, 2013, with the theme of "Walking over the sky.”
Iron columns were set up over a 35-meter-high coastal cliff, and a 15-meter glass bridge comprised of 24 glass plates and shaped like a horse’s hoof connect the iron columns. The bottom of the glass was specially produced with four attached 12-millimeter glass pieces coated with a bulletproof film that has a thickness of 55.49 millimeters, making the structure quite safe.
Picture: WIKIPEDIAVisitors will be thrilled with the view of the waves while looking down through the transparent floor. The sea stretches out ahead of the skywalk, perfect for a photo op, as well as the best spot to see Daemado Island on sunny days. It has also been recently selected as a tourist destination where the Busan Korea Route stops
While walking we were pointed out to these huge apartment blocks that stood out like sore thumbs amidst picturesque islands and cliffs.
sky was beautiful!
It was a very long walk to reach the bridge!
So we stopped now and then to play some tourists camera trick shots,
Yaay! we have reached...me and my stick in my hand!
NO SELFIE STICKS hahahaha!!!!
We were given shoe covers but luckily I was not in stilettos
Nevermind we had the guide to take photos for us and entrance was free
Through the glass you can see rock and coral formations.
The three of us......
With Miae the guide.
She loved to ask us to take her photos too
It was quite a long bridge but it curved and we we back at the entrance
So ya, we have done the Oryukdo skywalk!
This is how the old skywalk or bridge looked like!
