Across a valley in Shiniuzhai National Geological Park, there lies a breathtaking glass-bottomed bridge 180 meters high, daring women and men to put their courage to the test.

The bridge is known as Haohan Qiao, which translates as Brave Men's Bridge. If you take a look at the pictures, you'll instantly understand the reason behind the name. Creators claim it's safe, but we'll believe that once we cross it.

Originally this was a wooden bridge, but then in 2014 the park replaced a small section with glass and early in 2015 they decided to revamp the entire bridge.

The vertigo-inducing bridge in China's central Hunan province hangs between two sides of a canyon and is one of the latest in a series of glass-floored attractions, opening all across the world. The glass walkway is made of glass panes, with each one being 24 millimeters thick and 25 times stronger than normal glass. The worker, who constructed constructed the bridge, stated for the China News Service, that the bridge they build would stand firm even if tourists were jumping on it.   

If you think this will wet your pants, wait untill you see the other glass bridge (oh yes!), which will open later this year in the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon - when completed, this 430 meters long and 300 meters high stomach-turning attraction will become the highest and longest glass bridge in the world.
