Seven of the scariest treks on the planet

While some of us are satisfied with a relaxing beach holiday or a leisurely city break, others prefer chasing an adrenaline kick on their vacation. And if you’re that way inclined, read on.

Beware: these breath-stoppingly dangerous treks are not for the faint-hearted.

Bright Angel Trail, Arizona

If you’re not comfortable with a bit of warm weather, this is one hike you should probably stay away from. Even though this Grand Canyon trail is one of the few that includes rest stations with water sources, about 200 people a year are rescued from the mountain due to heat-related issues.

Other hazards the hikers could face include sudden rainstorms, flash flooding, loose footing, and encounters with wildlife. Mountain lions, you’re thinking, right? Coyotes? Black bears, huh? Well, sure – all of the above… But be particularly aware of the squirrels, yeah guys? A lot of hikers get injured by squirrel bites. M’kay?
