Apart from half the things in your house, your clothes and probably your favorite cuisine, what is also Chinese is the coolest bridge in the world. It’s called Haohan Qiao — or Brave Men’s bridge, and it’s self-explanatory by its appearance why it is called that.

Built in China’s Shiniuzhai National Park in the picturesque Hunan province, the beautiful bridge was originally made of wood. The inspiration for its glass attire came after park managers added a section of glass to the bridge last year. As South China Morning Post reports, they liked it so much they decided to change the entire bridge into this heart-stopping pathway seen in the pictures below. The bridge is 590-feet-high and 984 feet in length and according to Yang Guohong, one of the engineers involved in the project, it is extremely safe, “No matter how the tourists jump on the bridge we built, it will be fine. The steel structures beneath the bridge is incredibly dense so even if the glass gets broken, visitors won’t fall down.” He and 10 more engineers completed the bridge’s extreme transformation by adding new steel cables and struts for support before replacing the wooden slats with panes of a 24mil-thick glass.
