Most of us go for a walk to unwind after a busy day. We walk among the trees and enjoy nature. However, there are places in the world that are very scary to go and pass by. Today we will talk about these footpaths. Details below👇
1. Mount Ijen | East Java, Indonesia
At the top of Mount Ijen in Indonesia, there is a beautiful turquoise lake, unfortunately you cannot swim here at all desire. Because this lake is the largest acid lake in the world. This is due to the high concentration of sulfur. In addition, when the surrounding gas is ignited, a bright blue flame is produced. Although this lake and blue flames attract many tourists, the air inside the crater is toxic. Therefore, those who visit this place have to wear gas masks. Although the hike is not really difficult, it is very important to use the services of a guide when visiting Mount Ijen.
2. Treft Glacier Walk | Gadman, Switzerland
If you’re afraid of heights, stay away from the Trift Glacier in the Swiss Alps! Because people walking on this glacier have to cross a suspension bridge almost 100 meters high and 170 meters long. This bridge, very strong in construction, but not very reliable in appearance, is located over the lake Triftsee, formed by a melting glacier. The entire hiking journey takes about 2 hours after leaving the cable car.
3. Hua Mountain hiking trail | Huayin, China
The boardwalk on Mount Hua is considered one of the most dangerous in the world. This road is located on the South Peak, the top of Hua Mountain, which is 2154 meters high. To get to the top, you need to cross the wooden boards on the edge of the cliff, which are slightly wider than the average human foot. There are no barriers on the sides of the road. To ensure safety, hikers must wear climbing belts.
4. Doll head | Atlanta, Georgia
Constitution Lakes Park, located in the US state of Georgia, attracts attention with its lush trees and beautiful lakes. However, the most interesting part of this walking path is not its natural beauty. Around this path, about 4 kilometers long, there are many disembodied puppet heads.
Aokigahara is known as the “forest of suicides”. Although exact numbers are not known, it is believed that between 30 and 100 people commit suicide every year in this forest at the foot of Mount Fuji. That’s why suicide prevention signs were put up all over the forest. Another disturbing feature of this path is that there is too much magnetic iron in the soil. This is why GPS systems and telephone services do not work properly. Aokigahara is also said to be haunted.
6. Angel Landing | Zion National Park, Utah
Angel’s Landing is one of the most popular hiking trails in Zion National Park, but it’s also one of the deadliest. Angels Landing has claimed the lives of 14 people since 2000. The iron, passing in the middle of a rocky path, is the only source of support for tourists. So it is definitely not suitable for people with a fear of heights.
7. Mount Nyiragongo | Virunga National Park, Democratic Republic of the Congo
Mount Nyiragongo is home to one of the most dangerous active volcanoes you can hike up. The crater is the largest lava lake in the world, about 250 meters wide and 1970 meters deep. Every few decades, Nyiragongo erupts, causing great destruction in the city of Goma. The last eruption occurred in May 2021. Despite the danger, the sight of bubbling lava attracts tourists to the volcano. Climbing to a height of 3470 meters is not easy, and there is no guarantee that the lava will bubble.
8. Darien Gap | Colombian-Panamanian border
The Darien Pass, located on the border between Colombia and Panama, can be one of the most dangerous places to hike. This rainforest is full of swamps, disease-causing insects and poisonous snakes. This route is also used by people involved in the smuggling of weapons and drugs. So any kind of crossing is very dangerous.
9. Abuna Yemata Gu | East Tigray, Ethiopia
Ethiopia has many churches carved into the rocks. One of the most magnificent of them is Abuna Yemata Guh, carved into the rock at a height of several hundred meters above the ground. After walking through the valley, visitors to the church have to climb the rock without insurance. Moreover, since it is sacred ground, people have to climb the rock barefoot. Although the fall is deadly, no one has died here yet.
10. Walkway Caminito del Rey | Malaga, Spain
Those who want to hang from a steep cliff can head to the Caminito del Rey footpath in Spain. There used to be a narrow concrete road here, but over the years the road has become old and fragmented. In 2000, it was forbidden to walk along the road, because 5 people died here. A new wooden walkway opened in 2015.
