Most Hazardous Bridges In The World

You are about to see some dangerous bridges, we hope that you will never have to cross them.
 
Some of these were designed by world-class engineers, while others were constructed by locals who used materials they found in nature. Either way, these bridges are hazardous.

Royal Gorge Bridge, Colorado

This bridge the highest suspension bridge in the U.S. It was constructed in 1929, however, only after fifty years stabilizing wind cables were added.

 

The bridge crosses 955 feet above the Arkansas River, and it was the World’s tallest bridge until 2001 when China built the Liuguanghe Bridge.

Monkey bridges, Vietnam

This bridge crosses over the Mekong Delta. Like other monkey bridges scattered throughout Vietnam, it was handmade from a bamboo log.

 

While it looks dangerous, locals actually use it all the time, they can even carry 20–50 kg while crossing it.

Hussaini Hanging Bridge, Pakistan

This bridge is poorly maintained and strong winds vigorously shake it as you walk across. When you are cross the bridge, you can see the remains of the previous bridge still hanging.

 

The bridge has become somewhat of a tourist attraction, with hikers testing their courage as they carefully shuffle their way across.

Seven Mile Bridge, Florida

Located in the Florida Keys, it connects Knight’s Key to Little Duck Key. 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.

Deception Pass Bridge, Washington State

This bridge is one of the scenic wonders of the Pacific Northwest. It’s 180 feet above the water and 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.

Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, Louisiana

This bridge stretches 23.83 miles long and it’s 16 feet above the waters of the Pontchartrain Causeway below. It has held the record as the longest bridge over water in the world since 1969.

 

Its construction assisted the economy of surrounding North Shore communities by reducing drive time into New Orleans by up to 50 minutes.

Canopy Walk, Ghana

Suspended 40 feet in the air, the bridge is located in the jungle of Kakum National Park, but it was actually constructed by Canadians.

 

It was designed in an appealing way in order to bring more tourism to the park. While the bridge looks like a traditional rope bridge, it’s actually very sturdy.

Mount Titlis, Switzerland

How would you feel to walk across a bridge at 3,000 meters above the ground? The Titlis Cliff Walk is the highest elevation suspension bridge in Europe.

 

It opened in December 2012, giving views across the Alps. Luckily, the bridge is super safe and tons of skiers and visitors cross the bridge every year.

Vitim River Bridge, Russia

This bridge is an old train bridge that crosses the Vitim river, and many of its wooden planks are missing.

 

To make matters worse, the structure is often slippery due to ice in the area, leaving drivers to dangerously navigate this narrow six-foot-wide path at their own risk.

Puente de Ojuela, Mexico

Once used by the mining town below, today the bridge is for pedestrians.

 

It was completed in 1898 and restored as a tourist attraction in 1991. Tourists flock to this bridge because of its reputation as being one of the most dangerous roads in the world.

Quepos Bridge, Costa Rica

Also known as the “Bridge of Death,” this one was constructed by the Bananera Company from 1930-1940 for the train that moved bananas to the port of Quepos.

 

While it doesn’t look like it could even support the weight of a car, trucks actually cross it on a daily basis.

Sunshine Skyway Bridge, Florida

The Bob Graham Sunshine Skyway Bridge crosses Tampa Bay with a total length of 21,877 feet.

 

The original bridge was destroyed in 1980 after a massive ship ran into a pier. This newer bridge was built in 1987 and locals like to refer to it as the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.

Eshima Ohashi Bridge, Japan

While it isn’t as steep as it looks with a gradient of 6.1 percent and a height of 144 feet, we still wouldn’t want to drive up or down that thing. The bridge was built from 1997 to 2004.

 

It is the largest rigid-frame bridge in Japan and the third-largest in the world.

The Bridge of Immortals, Huang Shang China

Situated in Huangshan (also known as Yellow Mountain) in eastern China, this bridge is between two giant granite peaks. It has spectacular views of the mountains.

 

We imagine that the way to the bridge is perhaps even scarier. The Yellow Mountain is an adventurer’s dream destination for the experience of a lifetime.

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 to 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.

U Bein Bridge, Myanmar

While this bridge looks like it’s undergoing renovation, this is actually what it always looks like. The bridge crosses 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. Souvenir sellers use the bridge as an opportunity to sell their souvenirs.

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.

Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Northern Ireland

People who cross this 66-foot-long bridge to see the beautiful island on the other side are frightened by its position 30 meters above rugged rocks and water.

 

The bridge also has a crossing toll. Apparently, paying to be scared is a thing in Ireland.

Sidu River Bridge, China

The current reigning champ of the highest bridge in the world is the Sidu River Bridge in China. This steel bridge was built in 2009 for $100 Million. It’s 1,600 feet above the canyon floor and 5,000 feet across the river valley.

 

The bridge was part of China’s ongoing highway expansion project and it connects two separate parts of the country.

Mekong River Crossing, China

It is made of wooden planks and connected with mountain vines and it is historically significant.

Mystery Bridge, Indonesia

This bridge can be compared to an ‘Indo Board’ which is a device used by surfers and skateboarders in order to develop balance. They balance a wheel-less board on a foam cylinder without touching the floor.

 

A professional ‘indo-boarder’ wouldn’t get very far on this bridge in Indonesia. These school children surely don’t seem to be bothered by it.

Trift Bridge, Switzerland

This Bridge’s beauty is apparent to all. It suspends 558 feet over the glaciers of Switzerland and 328 feet above sea level. It is located near the town of Gadmen in the Swiss Alps.

 

The bridge was built in 2004. Stabilizing cables were added in 2009 to ensure safety.

Hanging Bridge Of Ghasa Nepal

Like many crossings in Nepal, the hanging bridge of Ghasa is used by both humans and animals alike. The bridge has been used for decades, despite its questionability under rainy and windy conditions.

 

On a daily basis, donkeys and cattle travel across the bridge hanging very high about the river valley.

Bein Bridge, Burma

Stretching over the Taungthaman Lake, for about three-quarters of a mile, the U Bein Bridge was built in 1850.

 

It is made from hardwood found in the tropics called teak. The bridge is very dangerous as there are no side rails and nothing to hold on to as you walk across.

Root Bridges, India

The world can learn a thing or two about these bridges which aren’t built, yet grown from material found in nature for their construction.

 

The bridge used the tangled roots of the Ficus elastica tree, a rubber tree which is found in the southern Khasi and Jaintia hills which produces secondary roots from higher up its trunk.

Taman Negara Canopy Walkway, Malaysia

Known as the longest canopy walkway, the Taman Negra Canopy Walkway stretches over 1,700 feet and sits at 130 feet above the forest ground.

 

The bridge has become a top tourist attraction in Malaysia. It is advisable to cross only if you are super brave and can avoid looking down.

Plank Road in the Sky ,China

We’re not sure this can constitute as a “bridge” as it is literally wooden planks along the edge of Mount Hua in China. It is 7,000 feet high and to be frank, it looks absolutely terrifying!

 

To cross, you need to connect your harness to the rope that runs along the mountain and grip the chain for dear life as you walk along the edge.
