Published on

I love to hike just as much as the next guy or gal. But I’ve never been lucky enough to get the thrill of hiking anything like these spots I’m about to show you here.

Hiking can always be dangerous I guess, a twisted ankle, broken wrist, nothing usually life threating thought there are always circumstances that spring up … But what about hikes where you are constantly at risk of plummeting to a gruesome rocky death?

[Video]Thrill Seekers Beware!!! These Hikes Will Make Your Hairs Stand Up.

  1. 1. [Video]Thrill Seekers Beware!!! These Hikes Will Make Your Hairs Stand Up. Posted by Hank Klinger on December 06, 2013 I love to hike just as much as the next guy or gal. But I’ve never been lucky enough to get the thrill of hiking anything like these spots I’m about to show you here. Hiking can always be dangerous I guess, a twisted ankle, broken wrist, nothing usually life threating thought there are always circumstances that spring up … But what about hikes where you are constantly at risk of plummeting to a gruesome rocky death? Kind of like the end of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom when they cut the ropes on the suspension bridge and the evil priest bounces down along the sheer cliffs and jagged rocks getting nice and tender for the hungry crocs awaiting him below. OK so it’s graphic … I’m trying to stir up some emotion here. Just check out these next few hikes I found that put you in life threating situations the entire time. These “footpaths” are a thrill seekers wet dream come true, and to be honest they pretty freaking appealing to me. I guess you can say I’m an adrenaline junky. Anyway enjoy the post and I threw in a couple extra spots you can check out. They may not be as dangerous, but they’re pretty damned cool if you ask me.
  2. 2. Three Dangerous Hikes That Look Incredible 1. Huashan Cliff Footpath – Huashan Moutain China Plank walk ways and iron bars pegged in crevasses along with pathways barely wide enough for one person make this one of the most treacherous hikes in the world. Although it’s not nearly as dangerous as it used to be it’s still one hair raising hustle up vertical staircases to this once hermit haven turned tourist destination. I guess after the common fatalities the Chinese government had to put their foot down. It used to be visited by extreme pensioners of solitude such as Buddhist and Daoist. Now it’s more of a hot spot for college students and honey mooners. Here's a Video to give a perspective of this Treacherous footpath
  3. 3. 2. El Camino Del Rey (Also seen it spelled El Caminito) But I’m going with the first – Spain Another one of the world’s deadliest hikes that’s a regular hangout and destination for climbers and back packers from all over the world. Like the Huashan trail it’s got all of it’s own obstacle course like out croppings and man-made footings, some of which are just simple metal bars sticking out of the side of rock walls. Can’t say which is more inviting or un-inviting depending on your view point, the Huashan or the El Camino Del Rey? But they’re both treacherous and both places I’m going.
  4. 4. 3. Precipice Trail Arcadia – Maine This doesn’t look quite as bad as the previous two trails I wrote about. But I figured it could be a good spot for those looking to get a thrill, but not one with such a high mortality rate. Maine’s beautiful country anyway so what could it hurt to check out. More Iron Rungs and ladders to play on, they say it’s safe for adults and kids alike … As long as the adults pay attention and the kids take instructions well, but I wouldn’t go bringing little Timmy Two year old on a Sunday hike here without expecting some heart racing moments. And just to clarify these are someone else’s assumptions not mine so I take no responsibility if you take your toddler for a hike and he/she takes a tumble. But regardless of all that it looks like a wonderful hike and a little closer to home for a lot of you reading this I’m guessing. Now that I got the crazy hikes out of the way, I’ll throw in a couple more cool spots you can check out I think are relevant but not nearly as dangerous unless you’re really, really, unlucky or a moron. No offense meant to morons anywhere. First one’s pretty straight forward, not a hike or anything. But pretty freaking cool all the same, the Skywalk over the Grand Canyon in Arizona.
  5. 5. Second is this awesome Glass pathway around Mt. Tiananmen in China. Like I said it’s safe unless you fall over the railing somehow. And one of the most impressive things about these walkways was the way it was built … By hand and no harnesses, these workers are like Spiderman, impressive.
  6. 6. Ok I have one more thing I wanted to share with you. I didn’t really know how to categorize this but it’s definitely something that raises the hairs on the arm. Passu Suspension Bridge Northern Pakistan
  7. 7. I am doing everything I can to conquer each of these hazards... No matter what come hell or high water I'm making it through each of them and I cant wait! And of course there is a time and place for everything. Hiking is also a great way to stay in shape, and I suggest anyone looking to try any of these hikes be in very good shape to say the least. I know this post is fun, but these are some serious hikes. I hope you enjoyed the pics and post and I'll see you in the beaches of the world. If you found entertainment or value please comment below, like and share All that aside you can get paid pretty nicely to write and share articles like this about the things you love. Wouldn't it be great to earn some extra cash for your next crazy adventure. I love it now being able to travel and work from my laptop, no more nine to five... Imagine that. You should take a few minutes to check the video explaining all of this a little more. Click Here to see what the next big thing is
