On the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro lies the Pedra da Gavea mountain, a beautiful spot that overlooks the city and the Atlantic Ocean. No wonder it’s a magnet for adventurers and hikers who come to the scenic viewpoint at 2,769ft high. A dangerous trend of selfies near the edge is emerging, with visitors getting terrifyingly close to the drop off.
If you suffer from vertigo, you may want to look away now. The selfie spot located in Tijuca Forest, the world’s largest urban forest, is nail baiting stuff. Visitors have been know to lie, balance, do yoga and even hang off the cliff edge.
