Most dangerous bridge

The Hussaini Bridge in Pakistan is a harrowing experience, but commonplace to those who regularly use it. Known as the most dangerous bridge in use, it runs parallel to the original bridge which has already collapsed. One of the most scariest and dangerous bridges of the world is the Hussaini – Borit Lake Bridge in Hunza Pakistan. A bridge can prove to be dangerous for a variety of reasons; either because it’s very old, narrow, too high up above the land, over a quick river or if the wooden “floor” goes missing. What makes them dangerous is the fact that in spite of the condition of the bridge, they have to be used; as many a time, these pathways are the main or even the only way for the local inhabitants of a small village to reach a bigger city.
