The  Carasc Tibetan Bridge in Switzerland opened this spring, connecting two trails linking the historic rural communities of Sementina and Monte Carasso.

The footbridge is a terrifying 885ft long and 425ft high and took 28 workmen eight months to complete, according to the Irish Mirror.

The bridge is supported by six 36mm cables.
