It’s The World’s Scariest Bridge, Whatever You Do… Don’t Look Down.

If you’re afraid of heights, you may start to feel a bit woozy. China has just opened their first glass-bottomed suspension bridge. The structure is not for the faint of heart at 600 feet high and if you feel brave enough to cross it, it’s a long stretch of 1,000 feet long.

The bridge connects the canyon in Shiniuzhai National Geological Park in Hunan province. Although having glass as its main material may seem too fragile, its design is able to withstand frost, wind, earthquakes. It can also sustain the weight of 800 people.

The epic structure was built over the canyon in Shiniuzhai National Park in Hunan province.
