Are you dying to get a real adrenaline rush, or just want to challenge your fear of heights? So we have a list for you, we found the 10 most dangerous bridges! How many would you dare to cross?
01. Hussaini, Pakistan
In the small village of Hussaini in Pakistan you will find this gem of a bridge. It is considered to be one of the world’s most dangerous, partly because of the weather, partly because of the bad maintenance. Hussaini bridge sways high above the rapidly gushing Hunza River, at a time swept the original bridge away (remnants of the former bridge you can see next to – it gives that extra zing to the nerves). From the bridge you have to turn stunning views of mountain ranges of the Himalayas and Karakorum, so it is worth getting out of this terrifying walkway!
02. Trift, Gadmen, Switzerland
This 170-meter-long walkway is one of the longest – and highest – in the Alps. Trift Bridge hangs in the 100 meters in height, and the bridge was built to allow walkers to come over to the huts that were inaccessible because of a melting glacier. The bridge was renovated in 2009 and is now a little more stable. But do not worry; you will still feel the adrenaline start pumping…
03. Q’eswachaca closing Huinchiri, Peru
The Incas had an incredible developed road and bridge system, which they created by merging the local vegetation. Now there is only one bridge back from the time: Q’eswachaca. Local keeps the tradition alive by annually improving bridge with new ropes, mats and other materials.
04. Carrick-A-Rede, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom
This spectacular and famous rope bridge takes you to the beautiful coast of Northern Ireland. The bridge has connected the rocky Carrick-A-Rede to the mainland since the 1700s, and has become a popular tourist attraction, along with the Giants Causeway, located a short drive away. It requires some to cross the 21-meter long hanging bridge dangling 30 meters.
05. SkyBridge, Sochi, Russia
In the city of Sochi in Russia you will find the impressive SkyBridge that are all 439 meters long. The bridge hangs approximately 207 meters above the beautiful valley of Krasnaya Polyana, featuring mildly spectacular views. SkyBridge is designed so that it can also be used for activities such as bungy jumping.
06. Taman Negara, Malaysia
In Taman Negara National Park, you will find this suspension bridge, which is an impressive 400 meters long? Go for a “canopy walk” in the rainforest – it is hardly recommended for those who are afraid of heights, but with a walk among jungle treetops, you get close to the rich flora and fauna.
07. El Caminito del Rey, Malaga, Spain
El Caminito del Rey counted as one of the world’s deadliest hiking trails, and begins in the village of El Chorro in the southern Malaga province. The track has been around since the 1900s, but has undergone a renovation, due to a wide range of walking accidents. Above Gaintanes ravine, about 100 meters up, you will find a spectacular suspension bridge. This adventure is not for the cowardly!
08. Bridge Ojuela, Mexico
Not only is this bridge leads to the ghost town Ojuela, no, the bridge itself is also incredibly creepy, with rusty metal wires and creaking wooden planks. Puente de Ojuela stabilized by two iron towers, but you still want to just come over as soon as possible! The bridge is located in no meters height and is 318 meters long.
09. Aiguille du Midi, France
This bridge in France built 3,842 meters above sea level, and can make even the greatest adventurer to shake a little in hiking boots. The bridge is used primarily as a transition for off-piste skiers, but it’s also a great place to take up to, just to enjoy the stunning views of the French Alps.
10. Live bridges, Meghalaya, India
In the state of Meghalaya in northeastern India do you find these “living bridges” consisting of twisted branches and plants, which over time has grown into each other and form bridges. The War-Khasis tribe that has developed this bridge is the hundreds of years ago and are still being built new bridges of this type today. But it takes a few years before these bridges are stable, so be wary!
