The following is a list of the World's Highest Footbridges. These spans have different design characteristics then road or rail bridges with narrower decks that are often unstiffened allowing the structure to move and sway several inches from the effects of wind and pedestrian walking. These crossings are usually suspension bridges located in public or private scenic spots charging a fee for access. Most of the world's highest footbridges are located in China, Switzerland and Nepal.

The tremendous success of the Zhangjiajie Glass Footbridge in Hunan, China has sparked a glass footbridge construction craze that has swept through most of China's Provinces since the original opened in 2016. While none of these copycat crossings is as high or as large as the first bridge in Zhangjiajie, these newer spans of glittering glass each has their own personality that offer guests a unique experience with a variety of tower shapes and decks that soar high above deep chasms and crevasses in picture perfect surroundings.

Most of the footbridges listed below have height and span length figures that were estimated from analyzing satellite images and photos as official figures from private bridge owners and operators are usually exaggerated. I also included a number of Chinese glass footbridges that are below 60 meters in height.
