While many people choose beautiful beaches, many people prefer to go to the steep cliffs to satisfy their passion for life.
Life is very short. Looking forward to living the best, watching the world is one of the motivations for people to travel.
Some people open their eyes by going to the beautiful beaches, visiting the architecture of the old city. But there are others who need to hang hundreds of meters high to satisfy their passions.
From narrow roads on the fringes of the cliffs, to caves deep below the water, these are the 13 most dangerous attractions in the world, where daring tourists are constantly rushing to every year.
1. Hawksbill Crag – Newton County, Arkansas, USA
Newton County sheriff said that the sheriff’s office had updated 5 to 10 calls a year to report that someone had fallen or injured when climbing Hawksbill Crag wall in Arkansas.
Last Saturday, a 20-year-old student fell 30 meters and died trying to take pictures on the cliff.
2. Colorado River – Colorado, USA
Crossing the river with rafts is a popular tourist activity in Colorado – 550,861 people have used the service in 2016. But as the temperature rises, the snow melts from the mountains, making the river become full of danger.
Eleven people died on the Colorado waterway in 2016, 9 died in 2015, and 14 died in 2014, according to Fox 31 Denver.
3. Mount Everest, Tibet and Nepal
The highest mountain in the world is not easy to climb. The death zone of Everest is located at an altitude of nearly 8000 meters, especially dangerous because of the low oxygen and atmospheric pressure levels. Most of the causes of death here are due to avalanche and falling feet.
More than 200 people died when climbing Mount Everest. With too many people in the mountain density is also said to be the cause of at least 11 deaths in the past week.
4. Death Road Yungas, Bolivia
The road of death is lined with crosses and memorials for those who have died while traveling. The road is more dangerous when both cyclists and cars use it at the same time. An estimated 200 to 300 motorists die each year making it the “World’s Most Dangerous Road” title.
When a new road opens for cars and trucks, the number of deaths also decreases. But at least 22 cyclists have died on this road since 1998.
5. Huashan Mountain – Shaanxi, China
While walking on Mount Huashan, visitors must cross thin planks screwing into the ridge at an altitude of 2,100 meters. Many people call it the “most dangerous trip in the world”, but many others say it is the safest place in the mountain because it is the only place that requires a safety belt. The number of deaths every year is rumored to be 100, but this number has never been verified.
6. Precipice Trail – Acadia National Park, USA
About 160 people die in Acadia National Park each year, which means the rate is not too high: 0.57 deaths per million tourists. But accidents often occur on steep trails and cliffs. The first case of death on the trail is from 1985.
7. The Maze – Canyonland National Park, Utah, USA
The Maze temperature can reach more than 43 degrees, while it takes up to 3 days for assistance to reach people who are injured, dehydrated, or missing.
No one dies while walking in the Labyrinth because it is recommended only for experienced pedestrians. However, there are still 2,000 people walking through it every year.
8. Mont Blanc – Chamonix, France
Mont Blanc is called one of the world’s deadliest mountains in 2012 when there was a summary report that 100 people died each year here. One of the reasons is the abundance of tours. The explosion of travel companies has led to a rise in safety sentiment, which leads the guides to ignore the potential risks of climbing.
