Source: Link

Built in 1898, this bridge was used to transport ore from various parts of the Ojuela mining town. It is basically made from wood and stretches around 300 meters long over a deep desert canyon. A fall here will surely lead to death, making it very dangerous to cross. Puente de Ojuela, this historic monument built by the American firm under the direction of the Roebling brothers, was rebuilt in recent years by Pe ngaoles Company while preserving the characteristics of the old bridge without being touched. This 110-meter-high bridge over the rugged cliffs of the Chihuahua desert, which connects the ruins of the ghost town of Ojuela, which is less than half an hour away from the city of Mapim, in eastern Durango, Mexico, on the other side of the canyon, at the main entrance of the old gold mine is considered one of the most dangerous bridges in the world. Puente de Ojuela, which carries the life story of the mining town in the early 19th century, has become a major attraction since 1991 by tourists from around the world. The wooden pedestal bridge gave many visitors the opportunity to shoot pictures of the ruined city of Ojuela and the canyon.The numerous guests walking under the dry sounds of the wooden base of the bridge, which today is used only for pedestrians, reach the entrance of the tunnel of the gold mine, for which there are many stories.
