If you like to live life on the wild side, visiting these thrilling tourist attractions should be on your bucket list no matter what. Check out these awesome locations that are contractually guaranteed to get your heart racing!

Death Valley

If the name didn’t convince you yet, don’t expect a relaxing beach vacation when headed out to the Death Valley National Park. Located near the border of California and Nevada, Death Valley is a low, sweeping, environmentally exposed stretch of land that gets unbearably hot in the summertime. By unbearably hot, we mean 130+° Fahrenheit. If you didn’t know already, 130° is when first degree burns start to form on human skin, so you might want to stick to the other, slightly less dangerous seasons when you’re planning out your desert hike.

The Danakil Deser

Somehow, this desert is even more deadly than Death Valley. Located in Eritrea, North Africa, the Danakil Desert exhibits similar environmental temperatures to Death Valley, but the Danakil Desert is full of active volcanoes that cause geysers and bursts of toxic fluids to pop up just about everywhere. The Danakil Desert has been lovingly given the nickname “Hell on Earth,” but despite all the negatives, there is nowhere else on the planet that looks like this place. So, if you’re feeling up to it, you should absolutely visit the Danakil Desert, but exercise extreme caution at all times.
