If you've heard of the breathtaking beauty of the Swiss Alps and want to experience them from a vantage point, the Titlis suspension bridge is one of the best places to be at. It's 500 m above the ground and stretches for 320 m, being only 3m wide. While crossing this bridge, you get an unparalled view of the Alps and if it is in winters, you can see the ice reflecting off the sunshine. To add to the experience, the bridge has look-through glass planks to give you that thrilling view of the Titlis glacier below.

At first, this bridge would confuse you into believing that it is a roller coaster. Nicknamed “The road to nowhere”, it is situated in the beautiful west coast of Norway and due to the architecture, gives an approaching driver the illusion of taking a blind leap into the ocean. The thought of crossing it becomes scarier when you get to know about insanely high waves that crash into it on a continuous basis.
Best time to visit: May and September to see it in its natural grandeur.
Tip: Comfortable hot weather is never guaranteed so always carry your insulation.

What sets apart this bridge from others in this list is the scenery around it which will definitely convince you that paradise is real. If you were ever enthralled by those dinosaur movies where people would find lost worlds, this is the place for you. Bang above the Capilano river in Vancouver, Canada, the bridge ends at a cliffwalk which is right by one of the many gorges of the river and makes for a surreal setting.
