Bridges offer a safe way for people and vehicles to travel over bodies of water, valleys and roads. However, even the most structurally solid and safe bridges can make some uneasy. Weather.com has released a list of ten of the most terrifying bridges around the world that only the most daring and adventurous people would attempt to cross. Some of them include:
Langkawi Sky Bridge – a 410 feet curved pedestrian cable-stayed bridge in Malaysia at the top of the 500-million-year-old Mount Mat Cincang. The bridge, which was opened to tourists in 2005, provides 360 degree views of the Langkawi islands and the Andaman Sea.
The Capilano Suspension Bridge – located in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It was originally built in 1889 and made of hemp ropes and cedar plants. It was replaced with a wire cable bridge in 1903 and completely rebuilt in 1956. There have been several incidents of tourists falling on or near the bridge.
The Royal Gorge Bridge – spans the Arkansas River near Canon City, Colorado. The bridge deck is 955 ft. above the river below and held the record for highest bridge in the world from 1929 to 2001. In 2003, a wingsuiter was killed attempting to fly over the bridge.
