Trift Bridge is one of the most spectacular pedestrian suspension bridges of the Alps. It is 100 meters high and 170 meters long, and is poised above the region of the Trift Glacier. Even reaching the bridge through the ravine by cable car is an adventure.

Description

When global warming takes place the glaciers melt - some especially fast, such as the Trift Glacier. Just a few years ago the Trift Hut of the Swiss Alpine Club could be reached on foot via the glacier tongue.

In 2004 a suspension bridge was built, as the glacier was no longer high enough to take visitors to the hut. The Trift Bridge, which was modeled after Nepalese three-rope bridges, turned out to be a tourist magnet and was replaced in 2009 by a safer and more accessible bridge, which is considered to be one of the longest and highest pedestrian suspension bridges in the Alps. The gondola train, which was originally built as a freight gondola, takes passengers up to the area where the bridge is.
