#1 Cliffs of Moher, Ireland
Here, you can decide between an adrenaline rush, or just a calm and stunning view. The Cliffs of Moher are Ireland’s most visited natural attraction with a magical view of the ocean that attracts millions of visitors every year. Some radical cyclists like to explore the narrow lines of the Cliffs with their bikes and courage. Would you like to try this, or just admire the view from the top in a safe place?!
#2 Trolltunga Stone, Norway
Thousands of tourists visit this rock every year. The Trolltunga Stone is positioned more than 2,000 ft above sea level, and it takes around two hours to reach the top. But, the rock formation can also be enjoyed by boat.
#3 The Alnwick Poison Garden, England
Step inside the world’s most dangerous garden, if you’re brave enough. The garden is located inside Alnwick Castle in the town of Alnwick, Northumberland, England, and it is worth £9 million. The garden holds only poisonous or narcotic plants, with over 100 species of them. Some of them can kill with just a single touch.
#4 Devil’s Pool, Victoria Falls, Zambia
This is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world. It is located on the Zambezi River on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It is about 1.5 km wide and 128 meters high, equivalent to a building of 42 floors. But, the best part of this amazing waterfall is to sit in the “devil’s pool”, which is a few centimetres away from a massive drop. Do you dare?!
#5 Door To Hell, Turkmenistan
The Door To Hell is a natural gas field with 70 meters of diameter located in Derweze, Turkmenistan. The Door To Hell is noted for its natural gas fire which has been burning continuously since it was lit by Soviet petroleum engineers in 1971. It releases a strong smell of sulfur that can be felt kilometers away.
#6 The Atlantic Ocean Road, Norway
This is one of the most dangerous roads in the entire world – so much so that they close it off to drivers on rainy or windy days. But, if you feel confident enough, you can drive during a crazy storm. Sorry, but we think we’ll pass on this one.
#7 Anzhaite Suspension Bridge, China
This bridge is over 1,700 meters long, and is one of the highest bridges in the world. Although the structure is very safe, if you happen to fall, you’ll face lots of aggressive vegetation, sharp rocks, and wild animals. Scary!
#8 Plank Path Walk, China
The plank trail goes high up the Hua Shan mountain, just outside the city Xi’an, but note in the picture below how dangerous and crazy the trail is. Do you think you can?! Well, we don’t.
#9 Monasteries Of Meteora, Greece
The monasteries were build in a region of almost inaccessible sandstone peaks, where monks settled in these ‘columns of the sky’ from the 11th Century onwards. 24 of these monasteries were built by monks who were refugees from Turkish invaders.
#10 Hanging Temple, China
They say this temple, which is situated in the province of Shaxi in China, was built by only one man. After more than 1,500 years, the temple remains intact, despite its dangerous location. It is 300 metres above a river.
#11 Yungas Road, Bolivia
This slippery road, located in northern Bolivia, is over 600 meters high, and stretches for 70km. Amazingly, the width of the road is just a tiny 3 meters!
#12 Pagoda Golden Rock, Myanmar
The Pagoda Golden Rock is situated in Myanmar (also known as Burma) and weighs over 600 tons. Amazingly, it has defied gravity for hundreds of years. With three million metres of altitude, the rock position is certainly what attracts visitors the most.
#13 Kjerag, Norway
This rock, which is 164 meters high, attracts visitors from all over the world to travel up to its 1,100 metres of altitude. The way it sticks there no matter what is very impressive, because it looks like the rock is about to fall at any given time.
#14 Gozo Cliff, Malta
From the Gozo Cliff, which is situated in Malta, you can choose to dive into the Mediterranean Sea from hundreds of meters, or stay on the safe side and watch the sunset from there. Which one would you choose?!
#15 Cave Of The Crystals, Mexico
In this amazing and dangerous cave, you can find crystals up to 12 meters high. The temperature inside can reach 50 degrees Celsius and the humidity can shoot up to 98%! An ordinary person without the proper equipment can only survive in here for up to 10 minutes. What do you guys think?!
#16 Boiling Lake, Dominican Republic
If you like to take a hot bath, you’ll love this lake, where the water is always around 90 degrees Celcius. Yep, that’s right – the water is always boiling, and the stones surrounding the lake are known to be very slippery. So, think twice before taking a dip here!
#17 Thetford Mines, Canada
These are mines of asbestos, which is a mineral used in various products, including tiles. This type of fiber, when separated, can not be inhaled or even swallowed. If this happens, the effects can be deadly. From 1906, the product was banned in many places in the world, but even so, it is still found in some countries.
#18 Tsing de Bemaraha, Madagascar
In the local language, “tsingy” means “place where you cannot walk barefoot.” These stones travel up to 100 meters high, and yes – they are extremely sharp. This is the largest rocky forest in the world. A plane crash above this place would definitely not be good…
