The Most dangerous tourist place in the world

10. Volcán de Fuego, Guatemala

Volcán de Fuego, or “Volcano of Fire,” lives up to its name with regular eruptions that pose significant threats to surrounding areas. The 2018 eruption tragically killed more than 100 people and is a stark reminder of the unpredictability of natural forces in otherwise picturesque locations.

9. Mount Huashan, China

The dangerous routes of Mount Huashan challenge adventurers in China. Plank walks, specifically, involve clinging to narrow wooden planks mounted on a vertical rock. The journey up South Peak to the teahouse, with its steep climbs and dizzying heights, requires both physical and mental fortitude.

8. Juarez, Mexico

Juarez, located on the Mexico–US border, has earned a reputation for being one of the most dangerous cities in the world due to its association with drug cartels and violent crime. Although the city has seen improvements, its history of violence is a reminder of the challenges some sites face.

The Maeklong Railway Market in Bangkok is famous for its unique setup: vendors' stalls are located directly on the train tracks. When a train arrives, vendors quickly remove their awnings and temporarily relocate their wares. Tourists come to watch this dangerous dance between commerce and danger.

Located in the Mont Blanc massif, the Aiguille du Midi captivates climbers and tourists with breathtaking views. However, the cable car ride to the summit and the subsequent climb are dangerous endeavors. Strong winds, freezing temperatures and sheer cliffs pose serious dangers to those who dare to venture into its heights.
