If you're afraid of heights, than this new bridge in China may possibly be your worst nightmare come true! Chinese engineers have designed and built the glass suspension bridge high above the ground in Pingjiang county, in the province of Hunan, in southern China.

The bridge is 984 feet between two rocky peaks and if that is not scary enough, the structure actually moves when the wind blows.

One person who crossed the glass skywalk, Yun Ku, 23, said: "I was fine at first but by the time I was a third of the way across I was just weak at the knees. I had to go back when it started to move and needed a lot of coaxing from my boyfriend. I thought I was going to melt on the spot. My legs wouldn't work," according to news.com.au.

Sightseers are requested to wear overshoes when they cross the 2.5 metre thick skywalk, presumably to help cleaners, who would have to dangle dangerously underneath to wash the glass.
