Most Dangerous Trails and Bridges in the World

Courage, guts and adrenaline are required


One slip can change your life or end it. Perhaps it is the adrenaline rush of being vulnerable that makes crossing swinging bridges and dangerous hikes a popular adventure. Dangerous holes and rotten wood floors are not to be underestimated.[slideshow:101872]

Hikes along such terrain are certainly not a walk in the park. Rain, sudden changes in temperature, strong winds, and sometimes no trailing also put your life at risk.

This may scare many people away, but the gorgeous views and the proud feeling of accomplishment after completing the challenge prevail. That’s why people keep going.

Steep peaks, treacherous topography, bewildering and primitive bridges, and the uncertainly of how far below you  the forest floor lies can turn your trip into the ultimate adventure experience.

Imagine looking at the horizon and seeing nothing but rusted cables for miles? All you can feel is the strong wind. You look down and the bottom is hidden by a thick fog. Do you know where you are?

Is your heart beating faster already?
