The Grand canyon Skywalk is an amazing structure hovering 4,000 feet above the Grand Canyon floor. It’s suspended 70 feet off the rim and built with a glass floor, for the most fantastic views. The Skywalk is definitely one of the more popular places to visit because, there’s no better way to really be as immersed in the Grand Canyons awesomeness.

The construction of the Skywalk was an amazing feat of technology. Though it may sound frightening to some, it’s as solid as can be. This video highlights the construction and pans through some awe inspiring views that photographs just cannot capture.

What you may not know about the Skywalk, is that it’s not located inside the Grand Canyon National park, and doesn’t belong the park itself. It’s located on the grounds of the Hualapai Tribe in Grand Canyon West.  Since its construction in 2007, the tribe has managed the Skywalk and it has become a large part of their income.
