The World’s Wildest Bridges!
Talk about a walk with a nice view! Can you imagine going across THIS? It’s a glass bridge high above a canyon in China!
Time for some #wanderlust thanks to #TravelTuesday!
China’s Amazing Glass Bridges!
Talk about a wild new way to see thee sights!
These glass bridges allow you to see ahead, behind, and down as well!
Only one problem: one of them CRACKED! That’s right, this amazing glass suspension bridge in Jiaozuo City, central China’s Henan Province, is made of glass – and it cracked!
Here’s what Huffington Post reported:
“As I looked below me, I realized that the glass panel had cracked,” a man named Li Donghai posted on Weibo, China’s version of Twitter, after the incident, according to Shanghaist. “I’m not sure what caused the crack, but there were people screaming that very moment and I yelled, ‘It’s shattered! It’s really shattered!’ before pushing aside all the people in front of me to make my escape.”
China has a number of incredible glass bridges, and some actually crack on purpose – yes, it’s happened by accident but it also happens on purpose – as part of the adventure…look at this terrific YouTube video that captures how people react when on the bridge as it cracks!
See the video of the “cracked glass bridge” here:
I think the concept is hilarious – it reminds me of the highest skyscraper in the Southern Hemisphere in Melbourne, Australia:
My Host Sasha Grey and I were filming a TV special there – what a gorgeous and friendly city!
Once you take an elevator to the 88th floor of The Eureka Tower, there is a small room you enter…the windows are frosted and it actually goes out away from the building and this happens:
I don’t have a fear of heights but it was pretty dramatic looking straight down 88 stories to the ground – and an incredible view of Melbourne as well!
I also shared a terrifying hike that my Wife Alex and I did at Zion National Park in Utah:
This is Angel’s Landing: more than 1,500 feet above sea level, and my wife made it to the top!

I love exploring the wildest, most unique places on easy, like China, where you can take this hike:
Yes, here is the world’s most dangerous mountain hike! If you need more proof, well HAVE I GOT IT FOR YOU!
Look at how you begin to climb this baby!
Climb Aboard The “Hua Shan Trail!”
This is 100% true: this is a hiking trail! These are photos of the Hua Shan trail, which crosses over, under and between the five peaks of the 7066 foot Hua Shan mountain in China’s Shaanxi Province!
According to RocketNews24, “the trail is known among tourists as ‘the world’s most dangerous hiking trail’ on account of its steep climbs and sheer drops alongside which narrow paths snake.”
As you can see, they have found a way to make every part of this mountain “hike-able” – as long as you have no fear of heights!
Yes, that is a restaurant on the side of a cliff! Read all about it here:
