6 Deadliest Tourist Attractions In The World

People risk their lives every year to get a thrill at these crazy vacation spots.

These tourist spots and hikes take thrills to a whole new level. Visitors literally risk their lives just for a sense of adventure. 

El Caminito Del Rey, Spain

See this tiny little steel path with no handrails? Yep, that’s a hundred foot drop if you accidentally trip. Parts of the pathway have even crumbled, and yet people still flock to it to get their thrills.

Alnwick Gardens, United Kingdom

This garden is full of plants that can actually kill you. Visitors are kept at a safe distance, but some have still fainted from the toxic fumes in the air.

Hua Shan Plank Path Walk, China

This trail is literally a leap of faith. Many climb it to get to the temples atop the mountain. The picture speaks for itself when I tell you it’s the most dangerous hike in the world. There are some areas where there aren’t even any planks and you just have to wedge your feet onto the cracks of the mountain face. Some say that 100 people die every year on the path, although there are no official statistics.

Mount Pinatubo, Philippines

In 1991, Mount Pinatubo erupted unexpectedly and took with it 800 lives. Again in 1992, it erupted and killed 72 people. And yet people still come from all over to hike the crater lake. That’s a big NOPE for me.


Angel’s Landing, Zion National Park

The climb is fairly difficult, but the danger comes from the high volume of people up on the narrow cliff top with sheer drops on each side.


Yosemite National Park’s Half Dome

This day long climb ends with this terrifying cliff that you have to scale. 60 people have died on it. Two hikers who fell in 2011 had their bodies swept away by the rapid waters below. Not only do you have to worry about falling, lightening has also struck the mountain face. Anyone else reminded of the wall on Game of Thrones?
