For some walking over high altitude bridges can be scary enough on their own but one bridge in China has taken high altitude bridges to the next level.

The bridge, on Taihang Mountain near Handan city in China’s Hebei Province is a high altitude glass bridge that has added the illusion of the glass cracking underneath your feet as you walk across. Depending on your perspective its either a hilarious prank or a cruel joke.

The Bridge hangs over 3,800 feet in the air, affixed to the mountainside.

While the path provides an incredible view of the mountainous scenery, it’s also not for the faint of heart.

In the videos that have been have been making the rounds over the last few years, which creates the illusion that the bridge is going to shatter under the weight of those walking on it, can be seen striking crippling fear into a series of hikers.


To create the effect, bits of actual broken glass were placed under the sturdy glass floor, as well as video screens that display fake cracks in the glass as people pass over it. The sound of cracking glass is also piped in, to complete the terrifying effect.

How do you think you would go walking over this bridge?
