Did you know that the fear of bridges is called “gephyrophobia”? Even if you do not suffer from it, these hair-raising scariest bridges could be the best things to test your gutsy spirit…
The Ruyi Bridge, China
For a while people thought it was photoshopped, but the glass-bottomed curvy bridge is as real as it is cool.
Ruyi Bridge is a footbridge in Taizhou, Zhejiang China, made up of three bridges. It is a pedestrian bridge that was built to cross the Shenxianju Valley and it features a glass-bottomed walkway. The unusual curved walkways are designed to look like a Chinese ruyi.
The bridge is wavy and has three separate footpaths, portions of which have a glass bottom. The design has been described as three undulating bridges which are meant to blend in with the natural scenery. Madeleine Grey of The Sydney Morning Herald described the bridge’s appearance as a “mix between DNA strand and a futuristic Eye of Sauron.”
