Langkawi Sky Bridge

Wednesday, 21st May 2008 by

The Langkawi Sky Bridge perches precariously over a spectacular chasm, 700m above sea level on Pulau Langkawi, an island within Malaysia's Langkawi archipelago of 99 distinct islands1.

Incredibly, the cable-stayed bridge actually curves 125m around a single support, sweeping out dramatically over the vast emptiness below.

Acrophobics should probably avoid watching this wonderfully terrifying Youtube video, and gephyrophobiacs definitely won't enjoy these stunning bridge-level photos...

Thanks to Rusbridge.

  1. Except at low tide, when the archipelago consists of 104 islands↩︎
