Beautiful Scenery from the Highest Place

Updated on March 29, 2010

In my spare time yesterday, I looking around the internet information. And I found valuable info about unusual location around the world. Because I like something weird. And one of my big attraction in writing is about traveling place. And If I found interesting place around the world, I want to share to all of you through the hub. I had wrote many information about tourism place, and you can found it in my hub.

If you are afraid of high maybe this place is not suitable for you. But if you liked something which can pump your adrenaline, maybe this place is the right place for you. Actually most of these place are as tourism place, where many people come from other place or other country to enjoy the scenery around these place. 

Why I said these place are unusual, because the location is in the highest place. If your phobia of heights, it looks scary place to visit. Maybe if you come to the country which I mention below, you can visit that place.Because there are several location where we can visit the beautiful scenery from the highest place. Like: Austria, Norway, USA, Brazil, Argentina, New Zealand, Australia, Italy, These place become an alternative option for traveling idea. Just prepare your self to see the beautiful scenery and prepare to pass the highest place.

Aurland Lookout (Norway)

This place was made by Todd Saunders and Tommie Wilhelmsen as the architect. They design the beautiful walking stops on the Aurland mountain. And become the winner in Norway competition of tourist routes. We can see in the picture below how Todd and Tommie created a great design hang on the mountain. It need tough structure, with curved platform created to form the foundation of the structure. closed with a glass. From this place we can see beautiful views to the land below. This good for someone who dare to walk up to the very end. 

Dachstein Sky Walk (Austria)

If you visit Austria certainly will not miss Dachstein Sky Walk. With the high 7200  meters above sea level, on the Hunerkogel vertical rocks with 250 m height. This place also called "Balcony of Alpine Mountain". From the 360-degree of views the visitors can see the beautiful scenery of the south of Slovenia, Czech Republic in the north. Dachstein Sky Walk is much higher than Niagara waterfall. From this description we can estimate how high this place.

Grand Canyon Skywalk (Arizona – USA)

I think we all know about Grand Canyon. The biggest rock mountain in USA. I know this from my television. And this is become my biggest interest from tourism place in USA. And Hollywood also use the Grand Canyon as a backdrop for the movies. Grand Canyon Skywalk also become tourism place which used horseshoe-shaped an a construction. It made from the glass wall with 4 inches  of thickness. Grand Canyon Skywalk hang on 4000 feet above the ground. and length up to 65 feet from the end of the Grand Canyon cliff. This place is become architectural masterpiece that could hold the weight up to 70 tons (equivalent to 14 African elephants ) and can hold the winds blow up to 100 meters per hour. Just for remind, all the visitors have to wear anti-scratch socks if they want to pass and see the beautiful scenery of Grand Canyon. I hope I can go to this place someday.

Hanging Platform of Iguazu Falls (Brasil dan Argentina)

Have you ever seen the waterfall closely? you can feel the spray of the water from the waterfall directly. You can felt how the God create the amazing waterfall and all the beautiful inside this nature. We can try to relax and take a deep breath. We can got all about that in this place. It located in the subtropical forests to make many tourist who come to this place enjoy all the scenery. To appreciate the goodness of God, I think it nice to see this waterfall from the Skywalk. But for remind again be careful with the roar of water falling from a height of 80 feet which deafening.

Auckland Tower (New Zealand)

This is one of skyscraper tower in the New Zealand, the beautiful country near Australia. As we know there are many natural tourism place in New zealand. But this time I want share about Auckland tower. There is something unusual in this tower. With 328 m high Auckland tower is the tallest building in the southern hemisphere. It takes 2000 tons of iron, 660 tons of steel frame buildings and 15,000 cubic meters of cement to build this tower This building can withstand the wind up to 200 km / h speed, an earthquake measuring 8 on Richter scale. The most interesting moment is in the sunny day, the view can reach 82 km. The highest room is Sky Deck with made from the glass that provides 360-degree view.

Illawara Fly Tree Top Walk (Australia)

Australia is the beautiful country. We can visit many tourism place in Australia. But when you come to Australia don't forget to visit Illawara Fly Tree Top Walk. It need 5 months to develop this place. Located at Knights Hill on the ridge near Robertson in the southern highlands, Illawara Fly Tree Top Walk facilitate visitors to walk among the rainforest canopy 25 feet above the ground on the metal platform. We can enjoy the panoramic views of the coastline from Kiama to Shellharbour. DO you want to try?

Landscape Promontory (Switzerland)

This place is located in Switzerland, design by Paolo Burgi. The most interesting things about this place is the corridor made by the iron and titanium. We can see the symbol on the tile which describe about the history while see the beautiful scenery below.

Infinity Room at the House of the Rock (Wisconsin – USA)

This place was built in 1959. We can see  may rooms, roads, gardens, and shops with unique architectural designs by Alex Jordan, Jr. This house Is located in Spring Green, Wisconsin, I think many hubbers from USA know this place. As a a regional tourist attractions, many tourist come to see the beautiful scenery. Infinity Room at the House of the Rock was built without a buffer below, with more than 3000 hand-made windows in the both side. This house extends several hundred feet from the valley, I can't imagine how great architect who built this house.


Il Binocolo (Italy)

From this name we can know the meaning is binoculars. It located In the castle garden of Trauttmansdorff, Italy. This place was made by iron as a platform which out of the trees, design by architect Matteo Thun. We can also find beautiful scenery around this place.

      Hello Prasetio, the pictures are amazing. I am not good at heights and even look at the photos made me think - would I dare walk there to see the view? I think I would as I would be afraid of missing the chance to view these scenes. Thank you for sharing this.

      These places are really beautiful. But I don't care too much for heights, and the skywalks that hang over the mountains make me say 'nooooo'! Like the Hanging Platform of Iguzu Falls (I know I'm wrong, but it does not look like it can hold ten people without tipping over!). But I really like your description of 'seeing how God created it, and seeing the goodness of God', beautiful! You did it again prasetio30, who else would have found these places! Very beautiful and educational information. Good hub!

      P.....I am afraid of heights! BUT not afraid ENOUGH not to travel to some of these amazing places! I have often thought about driving to the Grand Canyon. It is about a 9 hour drive from my home. I was there when I was a child, but would like to take my children to see this beautiful world "wonder!" I think I will cringe when we walk out on the glass....! ha

      It wasn't there last time I went so many years ago.......

      One other place that I took the kids to in England was the "London Eye"....it was terrifying! Especially at the top! My kids kept climbing inside the glass compartment and I had a heart attack! Not really, but was really worried (my fear of heights).......the sites from so high were amazing when I could be calm enough to look around!!!!!

      I think I will feel a bit better the next time around......; ha

      ENJOYED THIS FANTASTIC HUB!!!!!!
