There are a lot of scary places out there but we most times tend to avoid it, like the Cape Verde which houses quite number on Great White Sharks in its waters , we totally should avoid it..But they aren’t scary when they are being avoided, it’s scary when those places are tried and tested..Out of lunacy, adventure or dare, these places are just not where the faint hearted should dare tread. Here’s the count down!!!
- THE TRIFT BRIDGE:The Trift Bridge is the longest pedestrian-only suspension bridge in the Swiss Alps. The bridge is a simple suspension bridge design spanning 170 metres (560 ft) at a height of 100 metres (330 ft). To reach there you will need to get to the cable car that is in Meiringen, where you will get a ticket for the gondola. The Trift aerial cable car takes #you up across the Trift gorge and up to the Trift valley. From here you can hike up to the Trift suspension bridge where a fascinating view up to the lake and glacier will reward your efforts. The Windegg hut can be reached either along the direct path Ketteliweg (Level T3) or the easier, Familienweg (Level T2). Surefootedness is required for the direct descent from the Windegg hut. An alpine route (Level T5) leads from the Trift bridge to the SAC Trift hut which takes 3 hours.
- THE DEVILS POOL: The Devil’s Pool forms the lip of the Victoria Falls, Africa’s #highest waterfall, which borders Zambia and Zimbabwe. A famous feature naturally formed is the Devils Pool, near the edge of the falls on Livingstone Island on the Zambian side. When the river flow is at a certain level, usually between September and December, a rock barrier forms an eddy with minimal current, allowing adventurous swimmers to splash around in relative safety a few feet from the point where the water cascades over the falls. Occasional deaths have been reported when people have slipped over the rock barrier but that hasn’t stopped the local tourism industry from stopping tourists from visiting it.
- EL CAMINITO DEL REY: El Caminito del Rey translated as The King’s little pathway, is a walkway pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, near Ardales in the province of Málaga, #Spain. The name is often shortened to Camino del Rey. The walkway had fallen into disrepair and was partially closed for over a decade. After four years of extensive repairs and renovations, the walkway re-opened in 2015. It has been known in the past as the “world’s most dangerous walkway” following five deaths in 1999 and 2000.
- PHUGTAL MONASTERY: From a distance, the monastery looks like a giant honeycomb. Phugtal Monastery or Phugtal Gompa often transliterated as Phuktal is a Buddhist monastery located in the remote Lungnak Valley in south-eastern Zanskar, in the autonomous Himalayan region of Ladakh, in Northern #India. It is one of the only Buddhist monasteries in Ladakh that can still be reached on only by foot. Supplies to the monastery are brought on horses, donkeys, and mules in the warmer months, and in the frozen winters, they are transported through the frozen Zanskar River. A road is expected to be built up to the monastery, however, for now, it is a day’s walk from Dorzang, the end of the road leading from Padum.
- TROLLTUNGA: Trolltunga literally traslates as Troll tongue and it is a piece of rock jutting horizontally out of a mountain about 700 metres (2,300 ft) above the north side of the lake Ringedalsvatnet in the municipality of Odda in Hordaland county, #Norway. The cliff is located east of the Skjeggedal area, about 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) east of the village of Tyssedal and the Sørfjorden. 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.
- THE CORK SCREW SUMMIT: The Stolen Chimney is a traditional rock climbing route located on the Ancient Arts tower one of the Fisher Tower. The cork screw summit is the western most summit of the Ancient Arts tower but it is not the tallest. The summit is noteworthy for its extremely unusually shape which makes climbing the technically different from most other climbs. The unusual shape also makes it visually striking. The name of this route, Stolen Chimney, is often confused with the name of the tower it is on, Ancient Arts, and the name of the summit, the cork screw summit. This is likely because this is by far the most popular climb on Ancient Arts and is predominantly known for the cork screw summit. And yes people have lost their lives climbing it.
- AUSTRALIA: This is one of the most dangerous places in the world, why?! well it’s simple- it houses some of the most dangerous animals in the world and the most intriguing thing is that even the tinnest animal in Australia can kill you. Here is a tiny list of why Australia is on this list.
The Box Jelly Fish-Highly dangerous, the box jellyfish is usually found exactly when you want to swim.A box jellyfish sting can be unbelievably painful. The venom is designed to paralyse fish, so it immobilises your nerves and affects breathing and movement. A large dose can cause cardiac arrest and death within minutes.
Irukandji Jellyfish– Irukandji jellyfish can be the size of a finger nail.Getting stung by these little buggers can bring on Irukandji syndrome. The syndrome can be marked by severe lower back pain, cramps, sweating, anxiety, nausea and other, more fatal, symptoms.
Bull Shark– It’s a badass shark that can hunt in both salt water and fresh water unlike other sharks. Its got lots of teeth and lots of appetite.when you see one, what you do is… well you’ll know what to do when you see one trust me.
Eastern Brown Snake– The brown snake group is responsible for the most snake bite fatalities of any Australian snake genus. The eastern brown snake’s bite can initially be painless and difficult to detect. That’s a problem, because if bitten, you’ll need medical attention straight away. Its venom can result in eventual paralysis and uncontrollable bleeding.
Salt Water Crocodile– We really don’t need an intro for this. The name is self-explanatory.
Funnel Web Spider– The venom of a Sydney funnel web can cause death, as it contains a neurotoxin component that affects the nervous system. The bite is very painful, and symptoms include sweating, tingling and muscle spasms.
And that’s Why!!!
