13 Places On Earth People Risk Their Lives To Visit
Our world is magnificent with beautiful natural wonders that attract several
visitors right through the year. However, there are some wonders that can scare
the living daylights out of you, or have you toying with the urge to flirt with
death and disaster. While the common man might just say no to visiting these
places, destiny defying adventure seekers know them only too well.
1. Trolltunga, Norway
Literally translated as Troll's Tongue, Trolltunga is one of the most
spectacular scenic cliffs in Norway. It is 1100 meters above sea level, hovering
700 metres above Lake Ringedalsvatnet. The view is breathtaking. The hike goes
through high mountains, and takes 8-10 hours in total (to Trolltunga and back),
and the ascent is about 900 meters. The hike is usually possible to do from mid
June, depending on when the snow melts in the mountains. Do carry an extra pair
of pants if you plan on peeking over the edge.
