On 24 September, a suspension bridge made of glass opened at the Shiniuzhai National Geological Park in China's central Hunan Province. Known as Brave Men's bridge, with 590-feet in height and 984-feet in length, it is the world's longest glass suspension bridge!

According to a report from The Telegraph, the bridge was originally made of wood and then was partly replaced with glass, before the whole bridge was rebuilt this year to make it glass-bottomed

Now a journey across it is said to be terrifying, despite reassurances that it is entirely safe.

The walkway’s 24mm-thick glass panes are 25 times stronger than other forms of glass, allowing it to “stand firm even if tourists are jumping on it”, a worker who built the bridge told the China New Service.

"The steel frame used to support and encase the glass bridge is also very strong and densely built, so even if glass is broken, travellers won't fall through," the worker added.
