China just opened the world's longest glass-bottom suspension bridge -- and it looks petrifying

If the height and swinging cables don’t get to you, the transparent bottom almost certainly will.

At 984 feet long, the Haohan Bridge — better known as the “Brave Men’s Bridge” — is the longest glass-bottom bridge in the world.

And it just opened to the public.

The newly opened contraption in China’s Hunan Province sits 590 feet in the air, stretches across Shiniuzhai National Geological Park, and has a bottom made entirely out of glass.

According to the South China Morning Post, the wooden bridge was originally only going to include a small portion of glass. However, developers took a liking to the modern look and decided to replace the whole thing.

But don’t fear the worst: The glass is 25 times stronger and 12 times thicker than the normal glass used in home windows.

Despite it’s impressive size and height, the bridge is actually one of several glass-bottomed structures around the world.

If you’re interested in going even higher than the Brave Men’s Bridge, there’s a glass walkway in Zhangjiajie that sits 4,700 feet above the ground.

Or take a visit to the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass-bottomed U-shaped observation deck that sticks out over the rock face 720 feet above the canyon floor.

If glass bottoms aren’t your thing, you could still get the death-defying feel by venturing to the Titlis Cliff Walk in the Swiss Alps.

It’s Europe’s highest suspension bridge, and it sits 9,000 feet above sea level.

Let us know how it goes. We’ll be here, safe on the ground.
