In the middle of Palk Strait between India and Sri Lanka is a small elongated island called Pamban, and it's connected to the Indian peninsula by a 2 km-long, one hundred year old railway bridge. This Pamban bridge, the only connecting link to the mainland, is considered to be one of India’s most dangerous. The wind is so strong here that trains slow down to a crawl when crossing the bridge, otherwise it would be blown off the tracks. The bridge’s design doesn’t offer much confidence either. One look at it and your heart will sink—the tracks lie directly over the piers and there are no guard rails. You can actually see the sea through the tracks.
