World’s weirdest places
Here are some weirdest and amazing places that may make you gasp if you are afraid of heights. Enjoy 🙂
1) Devil’s Pool, Victoria Falls, Zambia
Usually in dry season, a rock barrier at the edge of the falls forms a natural “Armchair”. Swimmers can go near the edge of the falls and enjoy the swim as well as the mesmerizing view. Its on the Zambian side.
2) Trolltunga, Odda, Norway
It’s only open during the summer months between June to Sep. There hasn’t been any fatalities recorded till as mentioned in Wikipedia. Want an awesome selfie? An Internet magazine has listed it as one of the best place to take one.
3) Cliff Diving, Islet of Vila Franca do Campo, Portugal
The cliff diver you see in the photo is Blake Aldridge who is diving 29 meters from a rock in Portugal in 2012.
You go through absolute hell on the platform,’ Blake Aldridge says. ‘Then you take off and go through this amazing calming sensation where you feel like you’re flying. You go through hell again when you hit the water, then you’re numb, then you come up and it’s total elation.’ This is how Red Bull cliff diver Aldridge describes the experience of leaping off a platform 28m high.
4) The Edgewalk, CN Tower, Toronto, Canada
Its one hell of a trip for thrill lovers to walk on the edge of one of the world’s tallest building. Its one of the extreme attraction for adventurous people who want to push their personal limits.
5) Bike riding on the Cliffs of Moher
The bike riding at this height and at this edgy steep cliff looks really terrifying and needs a lot of guts to do it. Scary as it looks in the photo. Balance must be the key here.
6) Insanity, Las Vegas
Gravity defying spin upside down. Imagine the rest.
Max Ride Distance: 68-foot distance between passenger and swinging arm base on tower.
Ride Height: 40 feet from observation deck, 906 feet above the Las Vegas
7) Sky Deck, Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower), Chicago
Located above 1,353 feet off the ground, on the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower, Sky Deck allows tourists to stand on the glass ledge. Standing in the mid air? I can imagine and hear the pumping of my heart and scary view of Chicago underneath the legs.
8) Sky walking on Mount Nimbus, Canada
Also called heli-hiking by some, one can only reach there by helicopter. It is clipped into iron rungs very high above the ground, onto steel rope across a long suspension bridge. The climbers are given two lines attached to a harness around the waist and legs.
9) Portaledge Camping at Yosemite
For the adrenaline lovers, this is extremely breathtaking and scary at the same time. Can’t imagine to be so calm like the lady and look below like the guy in the photo. I wonder how that portaledge bedding system works by holding so much of load. Scariest on the list!
10) Swing at the edge of the world, Baños Ecuador
The swing actually hangs from Casa Del Arbol treehouse, which is a seismic monitoring station. Long steep drop underneath and definitely you may feel your head spinning from the view underneath. But definitely worth extreme adrenaline rush!
