The fixed rope route on the Gemmi Alp above Leukerbad is unique in Switzerland and is guaranteed to thrill every climber

The route scales the massive face of the 9,648-foot Daubenhorn, lording over the sleepy resort town of Leukerbad, and is the longest via ferrata in Switzerland. It has all the feel of a technical aid climb, though hikers without climbing experience can pull it off. The climb consists of a 1.28-mile hike along cliffs to the start of the via ferrata. Then things go vertical on what is known as the small via ferreta, two hours of ascending along the wires and exposed rock climaxing in a sheer, three-ladder climb up 250 vertical feet.

This place is known to be the home of "God of Winds". The icing in the cake is the Stromboli, a small (7.8-square-mile), cone-shaped, active volcano that spews fire and magma all day long. Hiking to the craters at night is a life-list achievement.

The hike, which climbs 3,600 feet, is only truly frightening for about two miles, during which it drops to the abyss on either side and clambers over two munros (the term for Scottish peaks over 3,000 feet), 3,127-foot Meall Dearg and 3,173-foot Sgorr nam Fiannaidh. It's a steep climb all over.

When winter takes hold of the distant Ladakh, or Land of High Passes,region of India in the Himalaya, there's only one way to travel from the high, lonesome villages of the Zanskar Valley to the region's capital city of Leh.Despite the real danger and bone-chilling temperatures.

The Chang Kong Zhan Dao (or Sky Plank Road) is the boldest way access to the South Peak (which itself consists of three subpeaks).

Lion's Head is for the most part a scenic, if a bit strenuous (it climbs 2,000 vertical feet in just over a mile), hike until the end.
