A popular attraction, this bridge is 43 meters above the Kawarau River and in the middle of beautiful scenery located near Queenstown. The bridge is mainly used for commercial purposes, with a lot of people coming to bungee jump here.
The bridge is also part of the Queenstown Trail so it also gets used by walkers, runners and bikers who are passing over the area.
Moses Bridge, Netherlands
This bridge was once a moat which guarded a Dutch fortress. It is now a “sunken bridge,” completely disappearing into the landscape and preserving historical accuracy.
The discreet entry to the fort allows visitors to enjoy the area without ruining the moat’s presence. It is made completely out of waterproof wood and the way in which it parts the water is reminiscent of the prophet it is named after. You feel like the waters are parting for you. Luckily, visitors can pass through easier than Moses had it.
Daedunsan Mountain Suspension Bridge - South Korea
This bridge is part of Daedunsan Provincial Park which is defined by grandiose rock peaks of different summits and lush trees that fill the area.
The setting is absolutely breathtaking, especially in the fall when the leaves have turned their orange red hue. Definitely bring your camera but be careful with it (and yourself) if you snap some pictures while crossing the 50-meter-long bridge.
William Preston Lane Bridge - Maryland
Also known as the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, this bridge sits at 186 feet above the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. It stretches for almost 5 miles and carries 24 million cars a year.
. In 1967, the bridge was renamed after Lane, the governor of Maryland from 1947 to 1951, who promised to give the state “a system of highways second to none in the nation.” After increased traffic in the area, a parallel bridge was later built in 1973. The area often sees heavy storms and makes it difficult for drivers to see well. So definitely be careful.
Musou Tsuribashi Bridge - Japan
Also known as Japan’s “scariest suspension bridge,” the bridge was built in the 1950s and unfortunately hasn’t been well maintained.
The bridge is located pretty much in the middle of nowhere, in Southern Japanese Alps called Musou Tsuribashi. It is made only from wire and a few wooden planks with a narrow passage for those daring enough to venture across.
