While many of us may be afraid of heights, there are a select group of people that seek out the highest and most dangerous activities. While these thrill-seekers try to find the tallest mountains, the narrowest hiking trail or the highest tightropes, we’re sitting comfortably at home. This list contains fifteen images which include daredevils seeking refuge on the side of a mountain, walking a thin rope over 800 meters above the ground and hanging off the ledge of a skyscraper unassisted.
This breathtaking picture of BrayBrayan Mosby walking the tightrope near Rio de Janeiro. While we get to look at this sitting comfortably in our seats, Mosby walked across this tightrope at close to 850 metres above the ground.
This amazing photograph was taken on the Cliffs of Moher, which is located on the west coast of Ireland.
Even though the cliffs have a 600m drop into the Atlantic Ocean and have crazy winds, tourists still go mountain biking along the cliffs just to see the beautiful scenery.
Many of us think that camping is just on the ground, but it seems that some people go through the pain of walking for weeks in the Yosemite National Park just to get to their camping destination, which is sometimes hanging off of a 4,000 ft cliff face.
