The world is filled with incredible destinations for all to see. After much thought and research, mashtop highlights the top 3 Most Incredible Travel Destinations On Earth.
1. Albarracín – Aragon, Spain
Albarracín is a beautifully preserved medieval village in Northern Spain. The rock paintings in the cliff-foot caves of the Albarracin Cultural Park (some of the most important evidences of the Levantine prehistoric art of Spain) and the “Picaportes” (door knobs) are something to marvel at!
2. Les Jardins suspendus de Marqueyssac – Dordogne, South West France
Take a trip to the hanging Gardens of Marqueyssac overlooking the Dordogne and La Roque Gageac. From July to the end of August the gardens are open every Thursday evening and lit by candlelight. Over 2000 candles and a hundred other light sources are used to highlight the beauty of the cliffs and the park. This marvellous sight, accompanied by the sounds of amazing musicians makes for a truly magical evening.
3. The Swallow’s Nest – Crimean peninsula, Southern Ukraine
Meet Kirill Oreshkin. You might say he’s a little insane in the membrane, if ya feel me. Kirill is one of the many Russian daredevils that have taken up the truly insane stunt of climbing high buildings, radio masts and bridges all over Russia.
These crazy young thrill seekers clamber up as much as 1,000 feet up the sides of buildings all in the name of excitement, and all without a safety harness.
Hundreds of young Russians have started taking part in this dangerous craze that is sweeping across Russian cities.
The youngsters usually get into the buildings by climb through an open door or through a hole they find, then it’s just a case of making it to the building’s antenna and reaching for the skies.
The view from the top of this building’s antenna is very impressive, looking over the whole of Moscow. But is it really worth the risk?
Kirill climbs up buildings across the city without any safety gear… not that a helmet would help him much should he fall from this height.
These extreme climbers don’t seem to be put off by freezing weather and the prospect of ice.
Kirill classifies himself as an “urban explorer”. Personally I like to explore bridges such as this from the ground.
Hopefully those climber below are just messing around and haven’t just fallen to their death.
This picture is my worst nightmare. I commend those that have no fear of heights, but at least my fear will keep me from falling to my death.
Just looking at these crazy pictures made my palms sweaty and I felt my heart rate accelerate.
