Watch: Petrified Visitors at China’s Popular Glass Bridge

China’s popular high-altitude glass bridges are a dream for every thrill-seeker, but a nightmare for those with fear of heights. A viral video shows petrified visitors crossing the glass skywalk.

Over the past few years, different scenic spots in China have built impressively high and long glass skywalks to attract tourists. Although there are many who enjoy taking a walk on the glass side, there are also those who are overcome with fear once they have set foot on the glass and see the depths beneath their feet.

A video showing petrified visitors at China’s popular glass bridges became popular on video platform Miaopai today. “Just watching this make my legs go soft,” one Weibo commenter says.

Next month, the world’s highest and longest glass bridge will open in the famous Zhangjiajie national park. It will be 300 meters (984 feet) high and 430 meters (1430 feet) long.
