Bragging of your travels has become difficult. Itâ€™s no longer enough to see the world; you have to do it on a unicycle.
Youâ€™re running a marathon? Lame! You canâ€™t call yourself an athlete until youâ€™ve run six, back to back, in the desert. Naked!
Everyone wants the adrenaline rush; no one wants to find the adrenaline.
Well, NewsMobile has found it for you.Â Here are 6 insane adventures for the thrill seekers. Strap into your 5-point harness and hold on tight.
Relaxing in a sky hammock
Kicking back 164 feet above the ground feels counterintuitive, but the participants who boarded 16 hammocks at The Highline Festival in Monte Piana, Italy, didnâ€™t seem to think so.
Climbers chilled on a line that carried a total weight of roughly 5,180 pounds for the â€œTicket to the Moonâ€ project, which was captured by photographer Sebastian WahlhÃ¼tter.
Doing anything on Trolltunga
Trolltunga (the trollâ€™s tongue) is no doubt one of the most awe-inspiring cliffs in Norway, situated about 1,100 meters above sea level.
Upside down chin-ups? Nope. Carefree leg-dangling? Definitely NOT. At 2,300 feet above the surface of Lake Ringedalsvatnet, you shouldnâ€™t be doing anything but praying to live another day.
Hiking Mount Hua
China’s Mount Huashan is one of the most dangerous trail in the world. The trails up Mount Hua Shan involve steep staircases, vertical ascents, and a plank trail consisting of wooden platforms bolted onto the mountainside.
Climbers clip onto chains as they hug the rock face at peaks of up to 7,070 feet. Whatâ€™s more terrifying: is the wooden walking path that is less â€œbridgeâ€ and more â€œlip on the cup of your sanity.â€
Swimming in the Jellyfish Lake
What if you could dance with giant manta rays? Pet friendly jellyfish? Wave hello to black tipped reef sharks? If any of those sound intriguing, then head to Jellyfish Lake which is one of the best dive and snorkel destinations in the world.
Located on Eil Malk Island in Palau, the Jellyfish Lake is home to more than ten million jellyfish. Even though they have adapted to their surroundings by losing their sting, the sight of all of them together is terrifying.
Visiting the Door to Hell
Forty years ago, a vast molten cavity known as the Darvaza crater â€“ nicknamed the “door to hell” â€“ opened up in the desert of north Turkmenistan, and has been burning ever since.
Without a fence, the gaping hole is open for the public to get the closest look possible.
Checking out Trinidadâ€™s Tamana Caves
The summit of Mt. Tamana, the Central Rangeâ€™s highest point, affords some of the best views in Trinidad. An expanse of forest stretches as far as the eye can see; itâ€™s breathtaking.Â
But Tamanaâ€™s main attraction is bats. Between 5.30 and 7pm each evening 1 to 1.5 million bats, of 11 species, flood out of the cave in a continuous flow. Itâ€™s dramatic and one of natureâ€™s spectacles.
