Calling all daredevils: Switzerland opens the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world

Calling all daredevils, we have another incredible destination to add to your travel bucket list.

Just last week, Switzerland just opened the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the entire world. The Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge runs between the Swiss villages of Grächen and Zermatt, offering tourists some of the most stunning scenery on the planet.

The bridge slices the journey time across the Swiss valley from three to four hours into to just 10 minutes.

But that's 10 minutes of heart pounding, adrenaline and extreme balance. With a length of 494 meters (or over 1620 feet), and, at most, rising a mere 2,200 meters (or 7218 feet) above sea level, the attraction is *not* for the faint of heart. After all, you're scaling between the tallest mountains in the entire country -- what else do you expect?

"The thrill experienced high over the precipice is indescribable," said Daniel Luggen, the Director of Zermatt Tourism, according to CNN.

Understandably, Zermatt's website is sending a warning to shaky travelers. "For hikers with no fear of heights. Grated way over bridge. Through this, it is possible to look into the precipice below one's feet," it boldly states.
