The world is beautiful and bizarre. You are most likely to be awed by its beauty and then stand in sheer bewilderment with your trembling hands and numb feet. The ferocious heights of the mountain or the streaming terror of gushing water; anything and everything is beyond surreal.
Death is one of those things which is inevitable and yet we all choose to remain oblivious to it. However, what if you could choose the way you’d die, will you? Here’s a list of fascinating adventures in the world that are worth dying for.
1. Climbing Mt. Everest
Mountains can’t be everyone’s friend. It has taken many people inside it, lying untold under layers of snow, for years. But the humongous serenity of this place is only wanting to be described in words, even after decades of its existence. Sacred much? Join National Geographic for its Himalayan trek to Everest’s southern Face Base Camp on a two week trip to the world’s most scenic place.
2. Diving with sharks
Calm the chills down your spine due to what you just read, but this cage diving with great white sharks in Cape Town is totally worth the shot. This utter heart pounding experience will redefine your fear of death. This full day diving experience takes you deep into the ocean towards this wilderness of the sea.
3. Flying over Bermuda Triangle
It is that place in the Atlantic ocean which has safely gulped many ships. More than 1000 planes and ships have absolutely disappeared when they entered its territory. Believe it or not, there are numerous uncanny stories attached to it and, therefore, you can try flying over it, revel in the serenity if at all you are never planning to come back.
4. Bungee Jumping
Of course, you thought of this the moment you read adventure and danger, but did you know it is actually one of the safest of all. New Zealand, Switzerland, South Africa are two of the world renowned places for this sport. Imagine blood coming to your head when you free fall from the cliff, gushing towards the ground like a free bird, with a leash attached to your ankle. You can also try volcano Bungee Jumping in Chile.
5. EdgeWalk or dangle off the world’s tallest buildings
All those who fear height should not think of this one because this height is sure to overwhelm you. They say- what’s the point of creating such high buildings if you can’t walk on its edge? These towers in Toronto have your death wish covered. It will be one hallelujah walk.
6. A deadly jungle
An uncalled adventure is the best of all, but here we are telling you about this one because if not prepared for it, you will probably kill yourself. When just concentrate on the healing power of the plants when you can also be intimidated by their potential to kill? Europe has something in store for your next visit.
7. The deadliest hike in the world
Mount Huashan allows you to walk and rapple around its surface, with a tiny belt attached to your body. It vouches you an experience like never before. Standing at the elevation of 2,160 m, this mountain is one of the China’s greatest mountains, entailing a long history of religious significance.
8. Glacier climbing
Few things in this world subside the worldly charm to pieces and changes the way you define beauty forever. What better way to adventure when you can climb a glistening glacier? Try some glacier climbing and ice hiking for fun and newly found adventure.
9. Ride a Lion
A small fee and a form that reads that you adhere to their terms and conditions, you can sit on a lion’s back and ride it. Buenos Aires, Argentina is the place for this wild madness. This place pretty much opens their cages to people and let them do whatever they want. Play with tigers, cuddle with cheetahs and touch bears.
10. Swim with crocodiles
One bite from them and you are to bid adieu to the world, but a safe encounter is worth the shot. Crocosaurus Cove in Darwin, Australia, built what they quite honestly call as the Cage of Death, where you can spend 15 minutes eye-to-eye with a 19-foot,2,000 pound killing machine.
It is only in an adventure that some people succeed in knowing themselves – in finding themselves.
