Since the dawn of civilization, mankind has used bridges to traverse gorges, rivers, and ravines. Most are pretty standard, straight bridges that are perfectly safe to cross even under questionable conditions. However, sometimes the environments we live in are so unique that they require us to get creative with the bridges we build. As you can imagine, the Earth is a big place and some of the bridges mankind has built over the years are downright crazy. With that in mind, we scoured the globe for the craziest bridges out there. So, without further ado, here are the top 20 bridges in the world you’d be crazy to cross.
If you’re ever in the Swiss Alps and are feeling lucky, feel free to walk across the Trift Suspension Bridge. Just don’t look down, it’s the longest pedestrian bridge in the Swiss Alps.
Want to walk among the trees high above the rain forest? Then head to Kedah, Malaysia, and walk this suspended bridge, just don’t expect to find us there since its hundreds of meters in the air.
While it looks cool, the Old Bridge of Konitsa was built in 1870 and is just too old for us to risk our lives in order to cross.
Vancouver sure is beautiful, but we aren’t too keen on crossing this long, suspended ridge traversing a river that happens to be a full 70 meters above the ground.
