There is tremendous bravery.
Since ancient times, to cross a ravine or the river the two sides were connected by a bridge. At the dawn of human history it was a very primitive construction, consisting of thick ropes or vines, boards, and sometimes even free of the rope that served as a handrail. Not credible, simple structures at the end of the XVIII century began to replace the more complex structures, corresponding to the modern requirements.
Despite the fact that before the construction of suspension bridges now made all the necessary mathematical calculations, still when you click on some of them the soul goes to the heel. We counted at least 10 suspension bridges, in crossing which the blood run cold, and panoramas of the views from them are just breathtaking.
Peak Walk, Switzerland
The bridge connects the tops of two trehtysyachnikov – peak Scex Rouge and glacier 3000. The bridge is 107 meters and a width of only 80 cm Bridge leads to the observation deck where you can enjoy views of the peaks of the Matterhorn, the Jungfrau, Eiger and mönch.
The world’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge stretches at a picturesque place of the gorge above the river Mzymta in Sochi. The design has two viewing platforms located at a height of 207 meters above the ground. The length of the bridge is 439 meters.
The bridge was built to reduce traffic jams, which form herds of animals constantly moving up and down the narrow mountain roads. The bridge is regularly used by local residents to haul the animals, as well as by tourists who want to get their portion of adrenaline and a few photos to boot.
Taman Negara, Malaysia
Among the tropical forests of Malaysia lies the national Park of Taman Negara. One of the routes in the Park takes place on a suspension bridge with a length of 510 meters. A narrow lane ropes and boards is located at a height more than 45 meters from the ground, right at the tops of trees.
To take a closer look at the waterfall of Sindonology, tourists need to overcome fear and walk on a suspension bridge with a length of 390 meters, overhanging the gorge with a depth of 173 meters.
The bridge across the gorge Pollat located at an altitude of 92 metres. It offers views of the most famous castle in Germany Neuschwanstein, under a bridge falls down a 45-meter waterfall.
Carrick-a-rede, Northern Ireland
Rope bridge 20 meters long connects the mainland and the island of Carrick. The design is over 30-meter precipice. When strong gusts of wind the bridge has an impressive amplitude of the swing.
Capilano Park is considered one of the main attractions of Vancouver. The Vilesh river, the engineers connected a suspension bridge. To get to the other side, will have to go 137 meters on the rickety planks, over 70-meter abyss.
Highline 179, Austria
Of Ehrenberg castle ruins and ancient Fort Claudia in Reutte, connects the 403-meter bridge Highline 179. Bridge width is 1.2 meters. The bridge is located at an altitude of 113 metres.
El Caminito del Rey, Spain
Strictly speaking, it’s not even a bridge, and 3-mile trail, made of stakes driven into the gorge crutches and rails. The path was built in 1905 for workers employed in the construction of the dam Conde del Guadalhorce. Due to the emergency condition for many years, the place was closed for tourist, but on March 26, after a long reconstruction, the Spanish authorities re-open the Royal path for fans of adrenaline.
