Mystical bridges around the world

Postby GPSGuided » Sun 03 May, 2015 4:50 pm

Came across this listing of mystical bridges from around the world. Walked on any of them? Could be good reference for future holiday plans.

The highest ranked that I have walked on is at #73, Bridge of Sigh in Venice. Ouch! What's your?

Bridges are such a wonderful creation of mankind.

Two weeks ago I walked across a vine bridge in the Iya Valley in Shikoko. Japan.

Another in the French Alps on the GR5 - Pont du Chatelet, 97 metres above the Ubaye.

These probably aren't mystical either but bridge lovers might like Australian Geographic's Top 10 Australian bridges.

Most bridges have been hyped up by lighting, effects, and weather. I've done n°17 in Yosemite, it's not that impressive frankly : there are 2 paved walks on those sides of the river, and plenty of tourists (+ the shuttle) that usually fill it, it's not exactly "mystical". This one in France is nice too : Image in the Lavey valley, in Oisan.
