World’s First Suspension Bridge to Connect Two Mountain Peaks

At about 9,800ft-high and 351ft-long the new Swiss Alps' Peak Walk is the world's first suspension bridge to connect two mountain peaks, Peak Walk at Glacier 3,000 and Scex Rouge. The bridge which is 31 inches wide is the 2nd highest suspension bridge in the world will be open through summer and winter without any charge. The bridge cost is about £1.2 million actually was opened with a ceremony with a Restaurant Botta at the top of the mountain resort between Les Diablerets and Gstaad. The Peak walk bridge is a splendid platform visitors can see the Matterhorn, Mont Blanc, Eiger, Moench and Jungfrau mountains.

The construction work was extremely a significant challenge. Although work has completed now, and bridge is designed to survive the extreme conditions that come with the Alps, such as heavy snow and winds reaching 200kmh. It can hold up to 300 people at any one time but for added safety and comfort that number will be restricted to 150. Peak Walk adds to Glacier 3000 attractions that also include a summer toboggan run, a fun park and a snow bus. The bridge is a unique addition to our destination. Well, the bridge is the world's second highest suspension bridge behind the 3,000 feet up Titlis Cliff Walk in Obwalden, Switzerland.
