We were a group of 18 in Yongo tour. We arrived in the late afternoon in April
The location is beautiful. The bridge is not as scary as pictured. Repaired recently and the planks, although unevenly spaced is solid and secure. Even 70s+ ladies in our Yongo group managed to walk across.
We did the zip line. Exhilarating experience
To-and-fro zip line cost 1000 rupees. Felt safe as the operators put safety their priority.
There werent many tourists and all we had a great time here

Hussaini Bridge known as the most dangerous bridge in the world, only one of many precarious rope bridges in Northern Pakistan. I would suggest you to visit, but won't suggest you to cross it.
Fun Fact: It has 399 steps.

Took one look at the bridge and thought: "you are kidding!"

Not only it was hanging high above the extremely wide and raging Hunza River, swaying in the wind making creaky noises. Also, it was way-too-wide! One can't grab hold both side using both hands-so you could concentrate on not to fall through those very generously spaced broken planks: some were missing, many were halves.

Too late to chicken out. Once that nerve is calm, you might get the hang of it after over 100 meters in. Inshaalla! What a thrill.

The walk after was challenging. Mainly because of most trails were covered with masses of rocks brought down from the glacier. The second bridge just as long and impossible was a few hours away.Through the erosion gully, pass a tiny fertile village (didn't see anyone the whole time) up to the bear canyon then, come down a sheer cliff. Now, over the other side was a welcoming village (Zarabad or Husaini).

Walk up through the winding village road to a little store on hilltop, selling tea and coffee, soft drinks, sweets, biscuits. The loveable shop owner with the biggest smile ever is happy to cook eggs if you ask. A very kind local gentlemen brought in a stack of freshly baked apricot flat-bread. All gone in a flash.

Hussaini Hanging Bridge is a relatively new addition to the attractions of Hunza. The community has constructed it after a flood washed away their old bridge. The bridge is on Hunza River once you pass the Gulmit village. A parking area is available on the main KKH and there are big posters/signs so you can’t miss it. To reach the bridge you have to walk 15-20 minutes downhill. Community is charging Rs.50 for crossing the bridge. The amount charged will be utilized for maintenance of the bridge.

Bridge is long and it hangs high above the extremely wide and raging Hunza River it becomes really scary when it sways in the wind or when locals are crossing/running on it. The Planks are equally placed so once you get hang of it, it is not very difficult to cross but since the bridge is a bit wide so you cant hold rope from both sides. It is not recommended for children, as there are no security measures and no life jackets or lifeguards.

Once you are through with the bridge reaching back the parking area is challenging as the way back is steep and have to take shot water breaks.

It is really difficult to take pictures while you are the bridge because you are scared that you might drop your cell phone into the river and it is extremely difficult and dangerous to take picuters with one hand with a proper camera. :(

The bridge is not too hard but if you get scared then it can be very hard. There is about a 10 minute walk (mostly downhill) to the bridge. The bridge is quite long. As the planks are evenly spaced you can walk without looking down if you have the confidence. Seems pretty safe. There were a couple people there selling tickets (Rs30 ea I think) and provided some guidance.

We were lucky to experience the bridge during "autumn colours", which made it even more picturesque. The bridge is potentially dangerous, so you start off hesitantly, but after a while it gets easier. After crossing the full length, you can climb up a shale rock stairway ; if you do, you will be rewarded by a stunning view over a lake and mountain range from the top. Great fun and highly recommended !

This bridge doesn't only provide amazing view over Passu Cones, it is also one of the most thrilling experiences in my life. Some of my friends even couldn't cross this bridge. However, if you are not afraid of the height, this experience is really worthwhile.

Hussaini Bridge, its not only hanging, its swinging, dwindling, thrilling & markedly scary. Not easy to walk on 4" wooden planks with 12" interval between them. Its really needs courage to cross it, you will feel giddy on looking down, so just keep looking straight ahead. The wide Hunza river underneath the bridge otherwise looks beautiful. The area around is very pretty & scenic as rest of Hunza. It is situated in Gojal & connects Hussainabad with Zarabad. Constructed between 1966 & 1967 on directions of then President Gen. Ayub Khan .
Although such bridges can be seen at many places in Gilgit-Baltistan but Hussaini bridge is most scary & thrilling. Hunza people are said to be most expert in constructing such bridges.
