1. Aiguille du Midi (France): 3,800 m above sea level, it takes 20 minutes for a cable car to reach the bridge.
2. Carrick-a-Rede Rope (Northern Ireland): Only about 30 meters high, but wooden bridges and ropes are a scare for many people. Every year, this place welcomes approximately 250,000 visitors to see the island of Rathin, Scotland and the Irish Sea from above.
3. Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass (China): The world’s longest and tallest glass bridge at Zhangjiajie Park was closed after only 13 days of opening because of overcrowding. Situated at an altitude of 300 meters, this may be one of the most feared experiences for people who are afraid of height.
4. Hussaini Hanging (Pakistan): North of Lake Borit, Hussaini Hanging is considered one of the most dangerous bridges in the world. The bridge was built of wood and rope, now heavily damaged.
5. Capilano Suspension (Canada): About 70 meters high, the bridge helps visitors cross the river across the Canadian Rockies. The Capilano Suspension has existed since 1889, but was rebuilt several times.
7. Millau Viaduct (France): Travelers wishing to travel from Paris to Béziers and Montpellier will surely have to cross the world’s tallest bridge. At an altitude of nearly 350 meters from the foundation, the $ 445 million bridge is one of the greatest works in the world.
8. Monkey Bridge (Vietnam): The name is derived from the shape and difficulty of the bridge. Monkey’s body usually consists of only one or two bamboo sticks (wood), plus a handrail to help balance.
9. Langkawi Sky (Malaysia): The glass-bottomed bridge is designed with unique arch shape, giving different views of Machinchang Mountain. In addition, the entire body standing firmly rested only on the stay cable, connected to a steel base.
11. Chesapeake Bay (Maryland, USA): From a distance, this 7km long bridge is a magnificent structure connecting the two eastern and western banks of Maryland. However, this place brings a sense of daunting, when visitors have to travel a long way at an altitude of 57 m above the water below.
12. Royal Gorge (Colorado, USA): North of the Royal Gorge, at an altitude of 300 meters, the bridge of the same name has held the world’s highest position for more than 70 years (from 1929-2001). If walking through 1,292 wooden planks is not impressive enough, you can also sign up for a bungee jump.
13. Iya Valley Vine (Japan): Located deep in a mountain forest, the 900 year-old bridge was built entirely of wood and grape vines. Recently, the bridge has been reinforced and added to the side rail to reduce the danger.
