There are some adventures that are considered safe or safe enough anyway. Crazy rides at amusement parks, bungee jumping, skydiving, paragliding, you get the drift.
But what we’re talking about here aren’t just fun and games. These adventures are matters of life and death and extreme in every aspect. If you consider yourself a daredevil and an adrenaline junkie, you might want to think again after we display our list of 10 most terrifying adventures in the world.
Strap on your fearless boots for this one folks because when the going gets tough, the tough get going!
Here are ten most terrifying adventures you won’t dare to do:
Climb the Merciless Prophet, California, USA
If climbing heights doesn’t scare you enough already, the merciless prophet brings a whole new definition to rock climbing. The 550 m straight, vertical wall is not just a passionate conquest. One small miscalculation and you’re looking at an excruciating death.
Make Your Way To The Top Of Plunger Mountain, Alaska
Just the sight of this ferocious, gnarly, out of place giant rock in the middle of serene snowcapped peaks is enough to make your knees weak. Climbing this mountain has been likened to climbing a tree with no branches, only multiplied by a 100.
Ride on the Bike Path of Moher, Ireland
This dangerous trekking path 180 meters up with ledges as narrow as 10 cm should only be traversed by skilled cyclists who depend on more than just luck to ride on this route.
Turn The Fire Up In Cinder Cones Chile, Guatemala
Tired of snowcapped mountains and rocky terrains? Here is a challenge for you: climbing active volcano Mountain Pacaya. The mountain has erupted 23 times and is still churning out ash, dust and lava streams.
Chance A Fall In Rocky Mountain Waterfall, Canada
If the thrill of climbing dangerously steep mountains wasn’t doing it for you anymore, let’s take it to another level with the Rocky Mountain waterfall. It’s a frozen waterfall that has random icy sections that could come crashing down in a matter of seconds.
##Face The Angel Of Death At Angel Landing, Zion National Park, Utah
This extremely steep and extremely narrow hiking trail is one of the most dangerous in the world. Steep drops on both sides, and only small rocks to balance yourself on – this is one fatal trail.
Tea at Mount Huashan Shaanxi, China
Your love for tea could take you to the ends of the world as you hang on for dear life on unstable wooden trails and rocks on the dizzying 6800 ft high Mount Huashan, rightly called the Mountain of Death.
Dive Into Phantom Cave And Peacock Spring, USA
Had enough of heights? How about spiraling depths under water? Claustrophobic, pitch-black caves hundreds of feet under the earth’s surface are sufficient to scare even the most experienced of divers.
Try Great White Shark Paddling, USA
Because paddle boarding is too mainstream, we’ve brought great white sharks to deep waters where you can get as close as nearly 2 meters to the terrifying creatures. Let’s see how that floats your boat.
Take The Fall Kayaking At Palouse Falls, USA
Since climbing to dangerous heights isn’t cutting it for you, try falling off 60 ft high waterfalls in a small boat. Professional kayakers gulp in fear at this daredevil feat; you might not surface for more than 5 seconds.
