There was this article in CNN, about the top 50 fun Thrills to experience in your lifetime. Which then got me thinking about bucket list things to go do. Since this is a traveling forum, and you all have experienced wonderful things, I was wondering if you would be willing to share some thrill seeking experiences that everyone should do at least once in their life! :)

Here is the article if it peaks anyone's interests into going and experience the locations they have mentioned: http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/16/travel/thrilling-experiences/

The customized hike of Mulanje Mountain by -snip- is also pretty hardcore man,some very steep passes and weird locations deep in the mountain,wouldn't be surprised if someone didn't make it back.

Especially with some of not the brightest people in the world hike those and are not properly prepared. When hiking Half Dome, I kid you not, I saw someone in flip flops! Half of me wanted to tell them to go home, but then the thought of survival of the fittest came to my brain.

Interesting list! No 4, the Hua Shan plank walk is a great thing to do but not as scary as some make out. You have a harness and two separate clips onto a very secure horizontal wire - although it is a 2000 metre sheer drop to the bottom. We did it in July 2014 - a great experience and it probably should be on a bucket list.

We also completed Huanya Picchu, a climb after completing the 4-day Inca trail in December 2013 - probably more scary than the plank walk. Steep steps with no guard rail in very foggy conditions.

And Mt Kinabalu is no Sunday walk either!:)
