7 Most Scariest Bridges In The World


Hussaini Hanging Bridge, Pakistan

Known as the world’s most dangerous bridge, this walkway crosses Borit Lake in Pakistan and looks absolutely hideous.

Hanging with the poorest of suspensions and constructed with poor material, this simple wood and rope bridge risks getting washed away by the harsh weather and the water below.

  • Hanging Bridge of Ghasa, Nepal

The narrow bridge is laid at a great height; moreover, it is quite narrow and extremely unstable to wind gusts occurring regularly in this area.

Besides the fact that this bridge has been poorly constructed, every day not only the humans but also the cattle cross it in a large number.

  • Canopy Walk, Ghana Africa

This bridge lies within Kakum National Park and is the only canopy walkway in any national park in Africa.

The Canopy Walk is 1,150 feet long, with separate sections strung between seven trees. It’s constructed, in the main, from rope, and is a simple structure.

  • Storseisundet Bridge, Norway

Storseisundet looks more like a rollercoaster than a road bridge. Don’t like thrills and spills this might be one to avoid. With its sharp bends and dips and drops, this is a bridge like no other.

This is an area known for high winds — including hurricanes — and rain, and huge waves often crash over the eight bridges that, combined, make up this dramatic highway.

  • Vitim River Bridge, Russia

Only a handful of people have ever crossed this bridge and survived, and they have their own Facebook page. Why is it so scary. It’s iced over for most of the year, isn’t wide enough for a car and has no railings.

  • Langkawi Sky Bridge, Malaysia

Built in 2004, this pedestrian bridge is 700 metres above sea level. Just getting up there is quite an undertaking. Bad news is that it closed as of January 2014 and may never open again.

  • Puente de Ojuela, Mexico

Few bridges are more terrifying than this – a ramshackle structure that spans a deep canyon in Durango, in disrepair for decades and certain to scare those who come here to cross.

Built in 1898, Puente de Ojuela is no longer as popular as it once was.

The bridge was neglected and left to decay as the region’s precious metal mines exhausted.
