“Two friends sitting on a bed
Very disappointed and sad
One of them says, let’s think of a venture
The other one replied, Adventure adventure adventure”
In good old days, roller coaster rides were the only source of adventure. As time grew on us, our choice of adventure also changed. Now we look for something really out of the way, out of the box and out of this world to calm our nerve for adventure. We tell you about places that would take the adrenaline level to the peak and surely not meant for the faint-hearted.
Edgewalk holds the Guinness Worlds Records for the “Highest External Walk on a Building”. It is located in CN Tower. At an altitude of 1,168 feet, it is the actual justification to the slang, “lets hang out”!
EDGES OF MOUNT HUASHAN, CHINA
Hiking is not hiking until it involves great height and fear of death. Head for Edges of Mount Huashan if your idea of hiking is above 7,000 feet. Mt. Huashan is one of the five great mountains in China. Just watch your steps before it is too late.

SHARK CAGE, SOUTH AFRICA
If diving and the great white shark is your thing, then this is for you. Gansbaai is known as the capital for silent predators- the great white shark. Just a two and half hour drive away from Cape Town, experience the creation of God beneath the water.
So, you are a little scared of the heights but love speed? The Himalayas has a deadly combo for you. Swing between mountains from a height of approx 2,000 feet at a speed which can reach upto 100 mph. The adrenaline level could go berserk when you’ll travel almost 2 km in roughly 2 minutes. Get, set and fly!
WALK OF FAITH, CHINA
Kindly do not go for this particular adventure if you have trust issues. Located in the Zangjiajie National Forest, this 60 metres (197 feet) glass bridge is encircled around the Tianmen Mountain. Set 4,692 ft above the sea level, walk of faith is all about faith on the 2 mm thick glass.
DEVIL’S THROAT, BRAZIL-ARGENTINA BORDER
When you are near Niagara Falls, it gets very difficult to listen to your own voice because of the deafening sound of the water. Iguazu Falls is located on the borders of Brazil and Argentina and the water flows at 3.4 million gallons per second. That’s four times of Niagara Falls. Now you know why it is called Devil’s throat?
TITLIS CLIFF WALK, SWITZERLAND
The highest suspension bridge in Europe! Titlis Cliff Walk, situated in Swiss Alps, is 3041 metres above the sea level. You surely need a heart of steel to cross this bridge. The Cliff Bridge is only 1 metre wide and 100 metres long.
The best part- entry to Titlis Cliff Walk is free. Do not forget to capture the mesmerising view of the mountains.
DEVIL’S POOL, VICTORIA FALLS
The only thing required for this adventure is gallons of courage. Walk and swim the Zambezi River to reach to the infinity pool at the lip of Victoria Falls. More than 500 million litres of water cascades in a minute making it more breath-taking.
The only time safe to visit the devil’s pool is from mid-August to mid-January as the water level drops substantially in that period and you won’t be swept away by the powerful waves.

Eating cheese omelette and bread
Missing their adventures they weep
And silently close the light and sleep”
