1,000-Foot Glass Bottom Bridge Is the Very Definition of Horrifying

If you’re afraid of heights, this is not going to help.

Feast your eyes on China’s new glass bottom bridge in the country’s Hunan province. It’s almost 600 feet over the valley below and stretches 980 feet from one end to the other, making it the world’s longest glass bottom bridge.

Dubbed the “Brave Man’s Bridge,” it’s made up of super strong panes of glass just under one inch thick and people can cross it on foot.

One worker who helped build the bridge said it is perfectly safe:

The bridge we build will stand firm even if tourists are jumping on it. The steel frame used to support and encase the glass bridge is also very strong and densely built, so even if a glass is broken, travelers won’t fall through.”

A second glass bottom bridge in China is in the works that’s expected to be more than 1,200 feet long and four feet higher than the Brave Man’s Bridge.
