Danyore Suspension Bridge

Danyore Suspension Bridge: the bridge between heaven and hell

Located in Gilgit-Baltistan, in Northern Areas of Pakistan, the Danyore Suspension Bridge is a 510-feet-long bridge connected to a 10-metre curve tunnel. Dubbed as “Pul-e-Sirat” (the bridge between heaven and hell), is one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.

The bridge connects Gilgit to Danyore across the River Hunza and was constructed in mid-sixties. Currently the bridge is closed for vehicles and only pedestrians are allowed to pass through after being declared unsafe by the district administration. Locals say the journey is a test of a driver’s skill and nerve and add that an abrupt stop can leave a vehicle stranded on the middle of the stream, “which is a quite a frightening situation”.
