#5 – Siduhe Bridge, China
The Siduhe River Bridge is the highest bridge in the world, spanning the 500 metre valley of the Siduhe river in the Hubei Province of China. It’s a 1,222 metre long suspension bridge that opened in November 2009 and cost approximately $100 million to build.
The bridge is so tall that there wasn’t machinary tall enough to lay the suspension cable from one side to the other; so the engineers had to use a rocket to lay the first cable!
It is said that if a person falls from the Siduhe bridge, they will reach terminal velocity, making the Siduhe Bridge the only bridge in the world where this is possible. BASE jump anyone?
