If you’re after a real adrenaline rush, it’s tough to beat Death’s Road located in La Paz, Bolivia. The name really says just about everything you need to know.

In a similar vein, you could take a jaunt over to Mount Huashan in China and hike what is renowned to be the most dangerous trail in the world. Most of the climb itself is over sheer rock faces, with vertical ascents and stone stairways.

For the fun lovers, you can’t go wrong with rollercoasters. But if you think you’ve ridden them all and tried everything, have no fear. You can check out the steepest roller coaster in the entire world in Fujiyoshida, Japan. Fuji-Q Highland is an amusement park and home to the Takabisha rollercoaster. It uses motors to launch cars from 0 to 62 miles an hour in two seconds. In no time you’ll be screaming at breakneck speeds as you rush down descents approaching 121 degrees. It makes for a singularly amazing, unique ride.
Nepal offers a chance of a lifetime for the adventurer looking to really test the limits of their body. Trek through the Himalayas and witness the natural splendor of Gokyo Lake as you ascend to Everest’s Base Camp, and witness the wonder of Ngozumpa Glacier.

And if you think you can handle it, dive with some of the greatest predators in the entire world on a great white shark expedition in Australia. You’ll be able to come face to face with some of the most feared creatures on the planet, and go scuba diving in some of the world’s most pristine waters.
