Passu - Hussaini Suspension Bridges
by spearhawk on Flickr
I WILL WALK THIS The Hussaini-Borit Lake bridge is the most dangerous bridge in the world, but there are no ways so are still used in regular daily basis by those attempting to travel to the larger cities in Northern Pakistan. This bridge is an old bridge with missing lumbers, very narrow and high above the lake level. No figures of how many had died or accidentally fell while crossing the dangerous hanging bridge.
Hussaini – Borit Lake, Pakistan. Perhaps the most dangerous of all the bridges in the world is the Hussaini- Borit Lake Bridge. There is absolutely no way this is safe but is actually used on a regular basis by those attempting to travel to the larger cities in northern Pakistan. The bridge (if you can even call it that) is very old, missing planks, extremely narrow, and high above the lake. If you are searching for extreme thrills then this bridge might be a delight for you, however for the majority of visitors and locals alike the bridge is truly death-defying and fearful. It is not known exactly how many people may have become a casualty while crossing this treacherous structure, but more than enough so take heed.
I always say, "Let's cross that bridge when we get to it." But I'm not sure I would cross this one.....Before this read quote I was feeling the same way, but thinking about it if this bridge is in our path, then crossing the bridge is part of our journey and we still could cross by changing each board with each step that we take and by doing so we leave behind a safe path for those that need to cross that bridge when they get to it.....just a thought!
Where is this!!? It's like Indiana Jones.
The Hussaini- Borit Lake Bridge is considered the most dangerous as it is very old, narrow, too high above the lake and the wooden planks are missing. This dangerous rope bridge is the only means for the local people to travel to big cities in northern Pakistan. The two bridge trek forms a major tourist attraction in Pakistan. The view from the Borit lake bridge is picturesque and this attracts the tourists to take the long and dangerous trek.

All bridges bring you somewhere... Chances are it is a pretty good place, since if it was not, would anybody have bothered to build a bridge?
pedestrian bridge - where is this?
It's a guess but it looks like one in China. I just can't remember the name of it sorry
