20 Secret Places You've Got To Visit Soon

Do you know these places? The World's Most Dangerous Trail on Mr. Huashan Leads to a Teahouse. We hope you’re not afraid of heights, because this even made our palms sweat.

The World's Most Dangerous Trail on Mr. Huashan Leads to a Teahouse

What you see below is a mountain in China called Mt. Hua Shan. At its base, you’ll find a gigantic set of stone stairs, called “the Heavenly Stairs.” These stairs go so high up the mountainside, it’s hard to see where they end. If that wasn’t enough, the precarious stairs lead to the world’s most dangerous trail, the Hua Shan plank path. The stairs themselves, although beautiful, are daunting. And they are the easiest part of the climb. However, countless people make the dangerous journey for what’s at the top… As you climb the stairs, you pass little villages and houses that have cropped up on the mountain.

Then, once you get high enough, you can take a gondola to the southern peak, where the plank path awaits. This is where the path turns truly dangerous, with nothing but planks to walk on and a rail of chains to hold onto. There’s almost nothing from keeping you from falling.

Located in south-east Siberia, Lake Baikal is an ice lover and ecological savant's dream come true. Oh, did we mention that it contains 1/5 of the world's unfrozen freshwater reserve (more than the Great Lakes combined)? Here it is all frozen and stuff. Referred to as the 'Galapagos of Russia', it's also an UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its plentiful and unique fauna, with some 1,340 species of animals and 570 species of plant.

Adventuresome tourists have long visited the lake to drive across it (or walk across it) frozen and take on some more regular expeditions like kayaking, skating and biking. Winter in Lofoten Islands.

We thought we'd never top our love and awe for Vietnam's crazy cool Son Doong cave. But oh, we were wrong. Here's our new current favorite: Reed Flute Cave. Located outside downtown Guillin (which is in China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region), the cave has been an area attraction for some 1,200 years (there are roughly 70 inscriptions in the cave thanks to folks from the Tang Dynasty way back when). While it pales in comparison to Son Doong cave, and others (it's about 787 feet long, whereas Son Doong is 5.5 miles long), the cave has beautiful stalagmites, stalactites and rock pillars in wacky shapes (people say one even looks like the Statue of Liberty). One grotto can reportedly hold up to 1,000 people. 20 places that don’t look real (20 pictures. These pictures show such incredible place that it is hard to believe that they are real.

From above the lake appears a solid bubble gum pink. It is such a significant distinguishing feature of the archipelago that air passengers often crane their necks to take a glimpse of it. The lake is surrounded by a rim of sand and a dense woodland of paperbark and eucalyptus trees. A narrow strip of sand dunes covered by vegetation separates it to the north from the Southern Ocean. It is a saline lake with a width of about 600 meters from the ocean and separated by a narrow strip of land. (2) 9GAG - The Dubai tower is so tall it cuts through the sky.
