The Huffington Post has recently selected 10 of the most scariest bridges in the world. These amazing constructions cross rivers, mountains, and valleys and each one has it’s own breathtaking features. Are you brave enough to cross them?
01. Montenegro Rainforest – Costa Rica
Built using wood and string, the Montenegro rainforest bridge has all the attractions of a rain-forest under your feet.
02. Huangshan – China
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the mountains here were formed by glaciers about 100 million years ago
03. Carrick-a-Rede – Northern Ireland
It is said that salmon fisherman have been constructing bridges here for the past 350 years. These days, the bridge is mostly a tourist attraction for travellers who want to experience the area’s incredible wildlife like razorbills and kittywakes .
04. Kawarau – New Zealand
This bridge has become a popular place for bungee jumping, especially naked bungee jumping.
05. U-Bein – Myanmar
The teakwood bridge spans 1.2 km across the shallow Taungthaman Lake some 10 km south of Mandalay. It was built by U Bein in the mid-19th century when the capital of Innwa (Ava) Kingdom moved to the nearby Amarapura.
06. Daedunsan Suspension Mountain – South Korea
South Korea is listed with a modern building that should be kept away from those who do not like heights. This bridge is more of a giant ladder than an actual bridge. In fact it’s virtually straight up, so make sure you give it some thought before you make the narrow climb
07. Trift – Switzerland
Quite old and long, this bridge was built when the glacier below it melted and pedestrians could no longer make it across.
08. Sky Langkawi – Malaysia
It’s not a bridge to the sky, but it’s not far from the idea! The Langkawi sky-bridge in Malaysia is suspended at 700 meters above sea level and spans 125 across the mountains, offering magnificent views of the Andaman Sea and Thailand Tarutao Island. It’s set apart from other bridges by its curves that provide different perspectives of the landscapes.
09. Hanging of Ghasa – Nepal
You will probably find more animals then people crossing this bridge. It was original built to solve a nearby town animal traffic problem and is still used by both animals and villagers today.
10. Aiguille du Midi – France
Mt. Aiguille du Midi is a part of the Mont Blanc massif in the French Alps.
There is a long cable car that takes you all the way up to a panoramic viewing platform, a cafe, and an amazing bridge which is pretty much breathtaking as you can see in the picture below.
