If you are afraid of heights you may wish to steer clear of Aiguille Du Midi in the Alps with its 9,200 ft drop
This bridge at least is sturdier than the rickety Hussaini bridge in Pakistan, constructed from tiny bits of wood
Here are MailOnline Travel’s selection of vertigo-inducing bridges that could scare even the bravest of travellers
If you are afraid of heights you will probably want to look away now.
Here are some of the most precarious or just plain scary bridges that face brave adventurers around the world.
Those who suffer from vertigo may want to steer clear of the Millau Viaduct in France, which is the tallest bridge in the world. It has one mast that’s a dizzying 1,125 feet above the ground.
One of the most harrowing suspension structures in the world is the Hussaini Hanging Bridge in Pakistan which features large, nail-biting gaps between tiny planks of wood.
It is not the only bridge that could scare even the calmest of explorers. Every year the local villagers in the Andes near Huinchiri, Peru reconstruct their grass-made Q’eswachaka Rope Bridges which tourists can pay a small fee to cross, before it disintegrates.
Fears were realised last week, meanwhile, when a glass-bottomed walkway on the Yuntai Mountain, Henan Province in China, shattered under foot, leaving tourists unharmed but screaming and the bridge closed for repairs.
