Where: Trift Glacier, near the town of Gadmen in the Swiss Alps.
Stats: 328 feet high; 558 feet long.
They say: The longest suspension bridge in Switzerland but not as wild as it used to be since they added cables in 2009.
Where: Between Michigan’s Upper and Lower Peninsulas.
Stats: 5 miles long; 199 feet above the water.
They say: The fun only really starts when winds hit 30 mph and above. The Mackinac Bridge Authority will drive your car or motorcycle across for you if you chicken out.
Where: Various points across the Mekong Delta at the southern tip of Vietnam.
Stats: These bridges are built by hand by local residents and vary from town to town.
They say: Typically made of a single bamboo log and one handrail, you need the agility of a monkey not to end up in the mud in the Mekong.
Where: Hunza River near Hussaini, Northern Pakistan, crossing the Hunza River.
Stats: Destroyed by floodwaters in May 2010 but in the process of being 'rebuilt'.
They say: Arguably the most notorious bridge in the world – rickety planks, fraying cable and the tattered remains of a previous bridge to remind you of your potential fate.
Where: Iya-gawa River near Tokushima
Stats: 148 feet long; 46 feet high.
They say: The originals were built with slats of wood placed between 7 and 12 inches apart, secured in place with two single vines. Not for the faint of heart, even with the new hand rails.
Where: Kakum National Park, Ghana.
Stats: 1,000 feet long; 100 feet high.
They say: Even with handrails and netting, this high-hanging horror often brings people to tears.
Where: Akaishi Mountains, Southern Japan.
Stats: Not known.
They say: Bring a balancing pole – the only railings you’ll find on this 50-year-old bridge are two thin ropes.
Where: Vitim River, eastern Siberia.
Stats: 1,870 feet long and 50 feet above the water.
They say: This old railway bridge is barely wide enough for a car and iced over for much of the year. So notorious it has it’s own Facebook page.
Where: On the road between Tierradentro to La Plata in southern Colombia.
They say: This mountain road is littered with simple bamboo bridges that wobble violently as you cross, each one worse than the one before.
Where: On the road from Jaco to Quepos, Costa Rica.
Stats: No official stats.
They say: It’s not called the Oh My God bridge for nothing. The loose slats of the roadway clank loudly while the bridge shakes under the weight of all the vehicles.
Where: Kedah, Malaysia
Stats: 700 metres above sea level.
They say: Beautiful but fatally flawed. Closed in January 2014 and may never open again.
