Braldu Valley Road bridges

Located in the Skardu District of Gilgit Baltistan in northeastern Pakistan, the Braldu Valley Road runs through the Braldu Gorge to Askole and Korphe, two small villages on the way to K2, the second-highest mountain on Earth.

The road crosses several times the Braldu river by wooden suspension bridges. The condition of the bridges is hair raising. All of them are some of the most spectacular bridges in the worldThe most iconic bridge is called Korphe bridge. It’s 65.63 m (215.31 ft) long over the Braldu River in Askole Village, Pakistan's highest and most remote village. It’s made with broken planks.
