If like me you a little weary of heights, then this probably won’t be the first thing you put on your bucket list. 984 feet long and 590 feet high, the “Haohan Qiao” or “Brave Man’s Bridge” in Shiniuzhai National Geological Park is the country’s first all-glass suspension bridge. Easily one of the most terrifying things I’ve ever seen, I will be leaving others to do the selfie taking and keep a safe distance.
Starting as all wood, engineers replaced a section with glass and liked it so much that they transformed the whole thing. Clearly a daredevil or two in that group. With glass panels that are three quarters of an inch thick, I’ve been assured that it’s perfectly safe.
Not content with this transparent monolith however, another bridge in the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon area will soon outdo this one, standing at 1,400 feet long and 980 feet high.
I’ll admit it’s impressive. But still not enough for me to set foot on it
Don’t look down…
Get up please, you’re making me nervous
Taking your life into your own hands might just be worth it for the views
It looks like a futuristic version of that iconic scene in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
While it might not be my cup of tea to actually walk on, I can appreciate just how amazing this bridge is. Aesthetically pleasing and obviously well designed, this is something I think we’ll see a lot more of in the future. I still won’t be walking on them though. No way.
