You travel over one every single day but you probably don’t go over ones that are both bellies shaking and vomit-inducing. From ones that swing to ones that are too steep to be stable, here are the top 10 scariest bridges in the world.
Top 10 Scariest Bridges
10. Royal Gorge Bridge, Colorado
Royal Gorge Bridge was built in 1929 but didn’t have any stabilizing wind cords more than 50 years later, now that would be a scary walk! Since then it has become a charming tourist attraction and even has a cable car crossing for the bold.
09. Hussaini Hanging Bridge, Pakistan
What makes this bridge one of the scariest in the world isn’t just the plunge into the Hunza River below if you slip through the holes but also the ragged remains of the last bridge still hang by its side.
08. Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, Louisiana
It was built back in the 1950s to connect Mandeville with Metairie it has continued as one of the scariest bridges in the world since then.
07. Canopy Walk, Ghana
This bridge is hung 40 feet in the air, tourists get the chance to walk through the trees! From birds to animals, it’s not just the bridge that is scary!
06. Langkawi Sky Bridge, Malaysia
Hanging 400 feet above the ground the sky bridge has sealed many times for maintenance but is now completely open for the public.
05. Eshima Ohashi Bridge, Japan

04. Mount Titlis, Switzerland
Although, many enthusiastic skiers and tourists cross the bridge every year and no doubt the bridge is one of the safest in the world but still, it is one of the scariest too!
