The Amazon River Needs No Bridges

It is the second longest river in the world which spans 6,400 km in length, winding its way through the Amazon rainforest. You might wonder why there are no bridges for you to cross the Amazon river. That's because it doesn't need one.

Here are a few tidbits about the Amazon River and a short explanation why it doesn't need a bridge. The bridge shown on the picture above is Ponte Rio Negro in Manaus, which doesn't count as a bridge crossing the Amazon.
