Claimed to be the most dangerous bridge in the world, this bridge is one of the many hazardous rope bridges in Northern Pakistan. The bridge crosses over the Borit Lake in the Upper Hunza
It is terrifying for a number of reasons. First of all, a fall through this rickety gap filled swinging bridge would have you flying into the Hunza River down below. Secondly, the bridge is poorly maintained and strong winds vigorously shake it as you walk across. Finally, when you are crossing the bridge, you see the ragged remains of the previous bridge still hanging in tatters next to the newer bridge. The bridge has become somewhat of a tourist attraction, with hikers testing their courage as they carefully shuffle their way across.
Deception Pass Bridge, Washington State
This foggy bridge which is 180 feet above the water would definitely be terrifying to walk across.The two bridges connect Whidbey Island and Fidalgo Island. Prior to the formation of the two bridges, the only way to reach the islands was by ferry. In the early 1900’s locals had to travel with their horse-and-buggy using an unscheduled ferry to cross from Fidalgo Island to Whidbey Island. In order to call the ferry, they would bang a saw with a drumstick and then sit and wait for the ferry to arrive.
The bridge is one of the scenic wonders of the Pacific Northwest. I hope that ferry ride is still available because I’m not sure I would want to take the bridge…
Seven Mile Bridge, Florida
This is the second 7 mile bridge, the first one was taken down because it prevented boats from passing through due to its direct position in the water. It is located in the Florida Keys and connects Knight's Key in the Middle Keys to Little Duck Key in the Lower Keys.
At the time of its construction, it was one of the longest bridges in the world. The bridge has won 8 awards, amongst those, the Exceptional Award for Cost Savings Innovation from the Federal Highway Administration.While it doesn’t look so scary, it is about the last place I would want to be during a Florida hurricane.
Monkey bridges, Vietnam
This is definitely not your modern day bridge. This bridge crosses over the Mekong Delta. Like other monkey bridges scattered throughout Vietnam, It was handmade from a single piece of bamboo log. While it looks like something only an animal would walk across, locals actually use them all the time. It is a unique Vietnamese traditional symbol which gets its name because of the silly way in which people move their bodies while crossing.
These bridges, can be difficult and dangerous for people who are not accustomed to them. However, for locals who use the bridges all the time, they have been known to carry on 20–50 kg while crossing the bridge. Must we say, do not try this at home.
Royal Gorge Bridge, Colorado
Not only is this bridge the highest suspension bridge in the U.S, it also has some historical significance. It was constructed in 1929, however, only after fifty years were stabilizing wind cables added. The bridge crosses 955 feet above the Arkansas River. It held the title as the World’s tallest bridge until 2001, when China surpassed it with the Liuguanghe Bridge.
Today, it is a tourist attraction located near Canon City, Colorado. The bridge is located within Royal Gorge Bridge & Park, a 360-acre amusement park. Brave visitors can choose even to ride a cable car which will immerse them in a 360 degree view of Colorado’s most stunning scenery.
