Getting a good adrenaline rush every now and then seems to be what this society’s all about. It only makes sense that sooner or later, this would slowly crawl into our traveling habits. We’ve now officially reached the point where “thrill traveling” has become the new “get drunk at a hotel for 10 days”.
If travel and imminent fear of death are for you – because why wouldn’t it be? – here’s a list of locations where you can achieve your next near-death experience.
Mount Huashan, China
Yup, that’s the one with the small walking ledge where if you slip, you’ll fall and break seventeen necks. Best case scenario, you wouldn’t even feel the impact. Don’t forget to look down the entire time you’re crossing this ledge!
Devil’s Pools, Zambia
The erosion has caused this place to be essentially split in half. From the Zambian side, it’s possible in some periods of the year to essentially walk along the ledge of the eroded hole in the ground. And it’s bathing suit-friendly! What more do you want as you gaze into the abyss?
