The Hussaini Bridge over the rapidly flowing Hunza River in the Upper Hunza/Baltistan of Pakistan connects the Hussaini village to the Karakorum Highway. This area is wildly beautiful, amongst the mountains of the Karakorum, with snow-capped mountains and glaciers within few hours’ walk. This Hussaini Bridge is “new” as the tattered remains of the previous bridge still hangs next to it. Yet there are wide gaps between the planks while the wild side-to-side sway of the bridge makes crossing the bridge an Indian-Jones moment and a real test of courage.
