While this bridge looks like it’s undergoing renovation, this is actually how the bridge always appears. The bridge crosses the Taungthaman Lake in Myanmar. It is 1.2 km long and was constructed in 1850.
It is believed to be the oldest teakwood bridge in the world. It has become a tourist attraction due to the way in which its pillars just straight out of the water at over 1 km in length. Due to the heavy traffic from locals and tourists, Souvenir sellers use the bridge as an opportunity to sell their souvenirs.
Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Northern Ireland
Some people who cross this 66-foot-long bridge to see the beautiful island on the other side are so frightened by its position 30 meters above rugged rocks and water that they choose to ride a ferry on the way back instead. We don’t blame them.
The bridge also has a crossing toll. Apparently, paying to be scared is a thing in Ireland.
Storseisundet Bridge, Norway
With a backdrop of the mountains behind it, this road is spectacular yet also a bit nauseating. The bridge has been described as “The road to nowhere”.
It is one of the country’s official national tourist routes. So, if you’re a fan of the stomach drop feeling on roller coasters, you will probably enjoy this bridge.
Montenegro Rainforest, Costa Rica
This is a serene and beautiful walk amongst the trees in one of the world’s most eclectic rainforests. The hanging bridges bring visitors up close and personal with the Costa Rican rainforest.
But don’t let the beautiful landscape distract you from looking down. There are missing planks in the bridge, so be cautious and watch your every step.
The Bridge of Immortals, Huang Shang China
If you’re afraid of heights then this bridge is one you’ll want to avoid. Situated in Huangshan (also known as Yellow Mountain) in eastern China, the bridge is situated between two giant granite peaks that scream for dare devils to cross its path.
It has spectacular views of the mountains. We imagine that the way to the bridge is perhaps even scarier. The Yellow Mountain is an adventure thrillist’s dream destination for the experience of a lifetime.
