10 Of The World’s Scariest Bridges

Would you cross these terrifying structures?

This 60-year-old bridge is hidden deep in the southern Akaishi mountains of Japan. It is so remote that very little is known about why it was built.

‘Musou Tsuribashi’ literally means ‘Matchless Suspension Bridge’ in Japanese. The name doesn’t lie, no one has ever discovered an older or more sketchy bridge in the country.

It is constructed using wire and thin wooden boards to provide a walkway down the centre of the bridge. You can see in the video above that it’s basically a Health and Safety nightmare. Just listen to that wind whistle around the camera and the creaking sound with every step!

It’s not even easy to reach the bridge. You have to clamber up the side of a mountain with only metal chains to hold onto for support.
