China's Glass-Bottomed Bridge Looks Downright Terrifying

Omigosh.

This is not your average cakewalk.

Suspended a jaw-dropping 590 feet in the air, the glass walkway named Haohan Qiao, or Brave Man's Bridge, recently opened in China's central Hunan Province. There's no other way to put it: the bridge looks absolutely frightening.

Roughly 1,000 feet long, the bridge in Shiniuzhai National Geological Park has a double-layer floor that's made from glass 25 times stronger than normal. According to CNN, the bridge was originally made of wood, but the park started experimenting with adding glass in 2014. The bridge has just been fully converted to glass, supported by a strong steel frame.

Brave Man's Bridge is currently the longest glass-bottom suspension bridge in the world. Even more frightening, the structure apparently sways in the wind, says the South China Morning Post. We're getting butterflies already.

Earlier this year, plans were announced for another glass-bottom bridge in China in Hunan's Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon area.

When opened, the structure will take the title as the world's longest and highest glass-bottom bridge. Visitors who brave the attraction will get to experience what will reportedly be the world's highest bungee jump -- if they dare. 

Judging from the expressions worn by those crossing Brave Man's Bridge in the photos below, we might just watch from here.
