25 Precarious Places Around the World

21Mont Margeriaz, France

This mountain in France’s Savoie region is certainly worth the climb. As beautiful as the view can be, however, don’t get too close to the edge. Falling over would not end well.


22Grand Canyon, USA

There is no way we could get through this list without mentioning one of the world’s most famous canyons and at over a mile deep, dangling your feet off the edge is sure to give you a rush.


23Perrine Bridge, USA

Approximately 480 feet above the snake river in Idaho you will find the only man-made structure in the United States where BASE jumping is allowed year-round without a permit.


24The Huntington Ravine Headwall, USA

Formed by a glacier over thousands of years, this headwall on Mount Washington is only accessible by one steep, winding trail. In recent years hikers have been killed by everything from avalanches to icefalls so ascend at your own risk.


25Eiger, Switzerland

This mountain in the Bernese Alps is one of the more treacherous climbs in the world. Its north face alone has claimed over 60 lives in the past 70 years.
