5. The Eiger, Switzlerand


This mountain in the Bernese Alps is one of the more treacherous climbs in the world. It’s north face alone has claimed over 60 lives in the past 70 years.

4. Devil’s Pool at Victoria Falls

This natural rock pool on the edge of Victoria Falls in Zambia is a popular destination for tourists seeking a close brush with death. If you’re feeling adventurous you can even lay down with your arms extended over the edge.

3. CN Tower Edgewalk, Toronto

On the 116th floor of the CN Tower there is a sidewalk that loops around the outside of the building. Every year between the months of May and October tourists can strap themselves in and lean out over the city to get a spine tingling adrenaline rush.

2. Half Dome, Yosemite National Park

Although in the early 20th century this peak was declared perfectly inaccessible, since then thousands of hikers have made the steep climb up its rocky slope with the assistance of a couple of cables attached to the top.

1. Trift Bridge, Switzerland

As one of the highest and longest suspension bridges in the Alps nothing more than a couple planks of wood and some steel cables separate hikers from the icy glacier hundreds of feet below.
