Terrifying new glass walkway in China will suspend tourists 1,476 ft above a rocky gorge
CHINA seems to be intent on giving its tourists a severe case of vertigo.
The country is building yet another glass bridge, this time suspended 1,476 ft above a rocky gorge on Mount Langya in the Hebei province.
Visitors can walk several hundred feet along the 5,015 sq ft see-through walkway, which ends in a large viewing platform.
According to Mashable, the observation deck is large enough to hold 200 people at a time.

The bridge is one in a long line of towering see-through structures being built in China.
Last year, the country’s 1,400 feet long glass-bottomed structure, suspended 1,000 feet above ground level in Zhangjiajie park in China’s central Hunan province, had to close just two weeks after opening because of the sheer volume of visitors.
