A bridge sitting on the great Inca Road through the Andes is the finest remaining example of an Inca suspension bridge.

You have to have nerves of steel to drive along this adrenaline-inducing rickety bridge in Russia. To cross the dilapidated coup and Alinsky bridge in the trans-Baikal region drivers must navigate a tiny six foot wide path. With no railing or safety features to save them from toppling into the frozen water below. To make matters worse the old metal structure is covered with wooden planks which can be slippery due to the frequent snow and ice.
Sometimes it seems that bridge designers are twisted sadistic people. Take the designers of hay Bay’s Hong Yahoo bridge which opened in the end of 2017. they have constructed a bridge which spans 488 metres 1601 feet over a vertical drop of 220 metres 722 feet which is nerve-racking enough for most people but the designers decided to add a glass floor so that users could have a great view of the valley.
Hussaini Hanging Bridge
It hardly deserves the name bridge. The current bridge is the new improved version. The first even scarier version having been destroyed by the weather. The bridge is made of rope and planks. There is a constant icy wind blowing which makes the bridge sway violently. At least ten people have died while crossing the bridge according to locals.
One of the more unusual looking bridges. The vine bridge is 45 meters 148 feet long and only 14 meters 46 feet above the eye Ogawa River. But what it lacks in scariness it makes up for in weirdness.

The bridge is rebuilt every three years.
