The Most Frightening and Exotic Bridge in the World

This is the best day for me to write again about travel. Travel is the most interesting topic for me. From travel I can share beautiful place from all over the world. But now I’ll share about bridge. Bridge is the part of beautiful place. Bridge has a lot of benefit for human as transportation. Bridge helping people to connected from one place to other places. By the bridge we can see the beauty of rivers. Bridges as an icon for a city and the city became famous because of this. For good example is "Golden Gate" in San Francisco. I thought we all knew about “Golden Gate”. This is the most famous bridge in USA, Golden Gate as the icon of San Francisco. Golden was built in 1937, during the next 37 years this bridge was known as the longest bridge in the world. Golden Gate Bridge itself was the result of the massive project and it proposed by Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Golden Gate bridge project spent about $ 27 Millions. The length of the Golden Gate Bridge is nearly 2 km.

The bridge also talked about the culture. We know the culture from the people who live at that place and always pass this bridge. As the icon from a place, actually there are many beautiful bridges in the world, even in my country. From this hub I’ll share the most frightening and exotic bridge in the world. For someone who love walking and hiking maybe this is one of amazing experience for them. That's why most of these bridges become tourist attraction.


Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Ireland

This bridge is located in near Ballintoy, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The bridge connects the mainland to the tiny Carrick Island. Carrick-a-Rede Rope bridge under the control of National Trust. Actually this area is covering two hundred feet and thirty feet above the rocks. But now, this bridge became tourist destination with 247,000 visitors in 2009. There’s a thrilling experience when the wind blows over the bridge. It’s so frightening and challenging, if you're afraid of heights.

This bridge is located in in the Northern Areas of Pakistan. From Wikipedia the river is formed by the confluence of the Kilik and Khunjerab nalas (gorges) which are fed by glaciers. From the picture below this is terrifying bridges are enough to inspire vertigo in anyone. It’s like flying hundreds of feet in the air above hard rock from step by step above wooden board, a taut rope and your balance is the most important thing. With this condition make us easy to slip, just be careful!

Rope Bridge, Peru

Inca rope bridge is the simple suspension bridges above valleys and ravines to provide access for the Inca Empire. The bridge type is suitable for the Inca people who did not use the wheel transportation and simple traffic to pedestrian, even for animal guides. Incas use natural fiber which is found in the local vegetation to build bridges. These fibers are woven together to create a strong enough rope. There are two additional wires that act as a fence. Local farmers have a role of maintaining and repairing the bridge, so the function always running well until now. This bridge is located in Apurimac Canyon along the main road from the north of Cuzco. This bridge called Keshwa Chaca.

This bridge can pump our adrenaline. Bridge cables were hung by only one supporting pole. The pole has 95 yards length attached by 8 wires as counterweight. This bridge has length about 136 meters and 2 meters width. Remember when you are in front of the bridge, actually you are standing 687 m above sea level.

Awesome bridges! In the end of the 90`s I dreamt about falling down to the river with my backpack under this awesome bridge which I have not seen before. It was the time before I was interested about Ireland and not even visited it yet. Then I saw a magazine with the front page of this Carrick bridge in Northern Ireland. I wonder how I came to dream about this bridge. Since then I wanted to visit this scary bridge. Maybe in a few years to come. Thanks for sharing Prasetio.

Hi Pras our roving reporter has done it again with these amazing structures. I would love crossing all of them but my wife would have a heart attack just looking at the pictures. The sky bridge is unusual looking and the Konitsa bridge has seen better days, but will probably out last all the others. My home town in England is named Stourbridge, where mine and my wife's relatives live. It was first settled in about 1300 but the bridge is nothing to shout about. The beer is though:) So cheers to that.

Stunning pics Pras. Beautiful and what a great topic to write on. Have never heard of or seen most of these. Not for the height frightened unless prepared. We have an old and well know one here in North Carolina at Grandfather Mt. called the mile high bridge; and it has that tummy-in-the-throat sway to it. Thanks for the trip Pras.

Another very interesting hub, Prasetio! I loved looking at the photos. I live near the Capilano Suspension Bridge, but I find it very hard to walk over it! I don't like heights, and although I know that the bridge is safe, I feel very uncomfortable as it sways back and forth. There's always some people, usually children and teenagers, who like to deliberately get the bridge to sway, usually when I'm right in the middle of the bridge and can't escape! The view of the canyon from the bridge is wonderful, though.

Excellent idea for a hub! Very interesting. I feel like I've been site seeing...my family came from Ireland to the U.S in the 1800's. We have a 7 mile long bridge (The Howard Franklin Bridge) that goes from Tampa to St. Petersburg and Clearwater here in Florida. It sits right on the water so there are no heights involved. It goes across Tampa Bay. Thank you for the trip...

Hi Pras, the place i grew up in is a nice small town on the edge of the countryside, so I had a good choice. I knew a lot more people when I lived there and nearly all my family still live in the surrounding areas. When i was 24 I came out to Oz with three mates on a one year working holiday with no intention of staying. I was very homesick, but having a good time too. My friends and I extended our visas to three years. I decided to go back and the day I booked my ticket, was the day I realised that I wanted to remain living in Oz. I went back, applied to emigrate and have been here ever since. Australia is a great place to live, and Melbourne in particular. I have to dash as I'm playing soccer soon. Cheers my friend.

Hi Prasetio,

Your hub has given me an adrenaline rush. Well written and the pictures are breathtaking.

I have been across the golden gate bridge on a tour bus. The tour guide told us to hold on to our hats. He wasn't kidding. Talk about windy!

I can't imagine walking across the bridge as I don't like heights.

Take Care :)

I enjoyed looking at this, as many others have. I've also been across the Capilano bridge. Though it looked safe and sturdy, it was still a little scary. It seems like all of the others would require more courage.

Good job of researching this, Prasetio. A fascinating subject.

Wow is right! These are amazing bridges. Some of them look too scary for me, especially the one in Pakistan! I have been to the Royal Gorge years ago, and walked the bridge. It is a spectacular site and feeling. It is amazing also how the bridge was built.

I have been over the bridge SuzyQ mentioned many, many times, as I live in the Tampa Bay area. It is a beautiful drive and so peaceful to see the light reflected on the water. Another beautiful bridge in the Tampa Bay area is the Sunshine Skyway. It also spans the bay going north/south. It is 5.5 miles long and while making the ascent to the top, it feels like you may drive into the sky! It is rated one of the top beautiful bridges in the world.

As always, I leave your hub feeling refreshed and awestruck at the wonder of our world. Thanks for always inspiring!

fantastic and beautiful topic. I love when you write about travel too!

The pictures of some of those bridges were gorgeous- how can something so gorgeous simultaneously be so scary too. But I have experienced one of them on the list and glad you included it. When I was 13 I crossed the Capilano bridge in Canada with my cousins and aunt and uncle. Like you said, it's a strong bridge- when you walk on it, it feels very sturdy and safe. What a great experience, but I think I would probably get sick on it now. Victoria Canada is such a beautiful place overall.

My friend, izettl. I am glad to know how you love all the informations about these bridges. But, something make your comment so beautiful is your experience in crossing Capilano bridge. I believe that must be a great experience in our live. Personally, I love the beautiful forest as the background of Capilano Bridge. It's so refreshing.

Thank you very much in sharing about Victoria. I'll search more about Victoria Canada. Take care!

Blessing and hugs,

These are extraordinary bridges. We have one similar on Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina. The NC mountains have many "swinging bridges" that folks use to get home. These are not as spectacular as what you've shown us Prasetio. Great work- great beauty. Thanks nephew.

Wow. These pictures are amazing. As I read the article and looked at each bridge I imagined myself there and my stomach flipped. I am afraid of heights and I know that I would be so terrified to go across most of these bridges but the view that you get would be amazing.

Do you dress for yourself, or to Make MEN crazy? And the type of man that would go crazy over a leather skirt, maybe one spending time at places where they have more leather or just one not worth considering.

Oh my goodness! Some of these are breathtaking! Amazing structures and balance...and some..oh oh boy...very very scary. I don't think I could walk the Hunza River Bridge in Pakistan...no no no..that is the stuff of weird dreams! I'd fear falling! Such dreams are outfitted with these type of bridges..and movies where the lead characters barely make it across before the entire thing tumbles hundreds of feet to the ground or deep river. Beautiful hub and fabulous, gorgeous pictures!!! UP BEautiful, Awesome, Useful and Interesting..not funny though.. LO

This is a superb hub--one of the best I have ever read. I love your photos and the explanations you provide for each bridge. I think the Sky Bridge on Langkawi Island is my favorite; it is simply breathtaking. Thanks so much for sharing. I enjoyed this hub!
