Those who suffer from acrophobia, or the fear of heights, will want to steer clear of this new all-glass suspension bridge that recently opened in Shiniuzai National Geological Park in China’s Hunan Province.
The Haohan Qiao, or ‘Brave Men’s Bridge’, is a 900-foot walkway situated 600 feet above ground and is sandwiched between two cliffs.
The geological formations in this region are credited for the inspiration behind the breathtaking scenery in director James Cameron’s blockbuster movie Avatar.
Although this bridge marks China’s first all-glass suspension passage, it won’t be the country’s last.
According to Wired, another similar connection, said to span a 1,200-foot canyon in Zhangjiajie National Forest within the same province, is already under construction. The opening is scheduled for year end.
Have a look at the bridge below. Would you dare to walk across it?
If you’re unafraid of heights, perhaps this glass-bottomed pool located 10 floors above the ground will interest you as well.
