Glass bridges and walkways seem to be a big deal in China, with the fear-inducing attractions popping up in multiple locations throughout the country — one of them, which was deemed the longest and highest glass-bottomed bridge in the world at the time, had to close last fall just 13 days after it opened because of the enormous amount of visitors who came to see it.

The newest structure, suspended 1,476 feet in the air on Mount Langya in Hebei, China, opened to visitors last month. The 5,015-square-foot glass walkway, which hovers high over a rocky gorge, leads to a giant circular viewing platform that can hold up to 200 people. Plan ahead for this one though, as it’ll take about three hours to reach between the cable car ride and the 40-minute hike to the top. Check out the video below for a closer look:

Would you be brave enough to walk on this glass-bottomed bridge?
