25 Most Dangerous Hikes, Treks, and Climbs On Earth
From Machu Picchu to the Darien Gap these are the 25 most dangerous hikes, treks, and climbs on Earth.
20. Longs Peak, Colorado
As one of Colorado’s most popular peaks it is also one of the deadliest. The first half of the hike is deceptively easy, while the second half is deathly hard.
15. Aonach Eagach Ridge, Scotland
It’s probably not the first place that you would look for dangerous trails, but this mountain path offers no way down except through if the weather turns bad (which it often does). As you might expect, accidents are common.
10. Mount Washington, New Hampshire
With the Mount Washington Observatory laying claim to “the world’s worst weather”, numerous naive hikers have started up in shorts and a t-shirt only to get hypothermia half way.
5. Jungle Trekking, Southeast Asia
With numerous dangers ranging from unexploded mines all the way to hungry wildlife, Laos, Borneo, and Sumatra have still managed to attract a good bit of thrill seekers.
