If the rope gets cut just hold the rope tight on either side you can climb like in movies! just joking.
5. Trift Bridge
Location: Gadmen, Switzerland
Trift Bridge is another bridge in Swiz alps hanging in the air, by watching this I’m already scared to visit this place.
This bridge was built in 2004 as a response to the rapidly melting glaciers, the massive glaciers were no longer high enough to take visitors to the main hut, so this Trift bridge was born.
Only a single person can move in a line and the ropes are very tiny compared to other bridges.

This bridge is rebuilt every 3 years and now it became a tourist spot in Japan.
7. Kuandinsky Bridge
Location: Kuanda, Russia
Kuandinsky Bridge was built 3 decades ago. Unfortunately, the railway was never finished and now the same tracks are used for vehicles to cross the frozen river.
The scary fact is this bridge doesn’t even have a railing and is constantly filled with Ice and Snow. The pathway is only 6 ft wide and the bridge is made up of extremely old wood.
Many times, drivers must fill in the holes to be able to cross safely. One more thing: the drivers will close the windows or strong wind will push them and controlling the vehicles will be difficult.
Till now there was no accident occurred in this place but one should have the braveness to ride on this bridge.

Location: Engelberg, Switzerland
The other bridges somehow can cross but what about Titlis Cliff Walk bridge, it is 1500 ft above the glacier and the path is about 300 feet long only 3 ft wide in the Swiz Alps.
The Tiliscliff walk is the footbridge, and it is 9000 ft above sea level. It is scary because the entire bridge was built with a Steel grill and the tourist visit the place to capture beautiful images of the site.
Walking on Grill scares you more than concrete or glass bridges but to have an experience visit this place.
