Unless you're a total adrenaline junkie.

1. Relaxing in a sky hammock.

Kicking back 164 feet above the ground feels counterintuitive, but the 22 participants who boarded 16 hammocks at The Highline Festival in Monte Piana, Italy, didn't seem to think so. Climbers chilled on a line that carried a total weight of roughly 5,180 pounds for the "Ticket to the Moon" project, which was captured by photographer Sebastian Wahlhütter. See all of the spine-tingling photos here.

2. Swimming in The Jellyfish Lake.

Located on Eil Malk island in Palau, The Jellyfish Lake is home to more than ten million jellyfish. Even though they have adapted to their surroundings by losing their sting, the sight of all of them together is terrifying.

3. Doing anything on Trolltunga.

Upside down chin-ups? Nope. Carefree leg-dangling? Definitely NOT. At 2,300 feet above the surface of Lake Ringedalsvatnet in Norway, you shouldn't be doing anything but praying to live another day.


6. Visiting the Door To Hell.

Travel to Derweze, Ahal Province, Turkmenistan and see the blazing natural gas field that has burned continuously since it was lit by Soviet petroleum engineers in 1971. Without a fence, the gaping hole is open for the public to get the closest look possible.


10. Base jumping in Zakynthos, Greece.

It's safe, they said. There isn't a shipwreck either, they said. Base jumping in Navagio Beach has become so popular that it now hosts the Summer BASE Jump Boogie, where athletes make more than 300 jumps in five days.
