In order to survive and get out of the canyon – you have to cut your own hand. It is unlikely that Aron Lee Ralston could have imagined that this would happen to him when he set off to conquer another mountain peak in the Blue John Canyon in Utah. Having wound the amputated limb, he began to descend, where he was accidentally met by tourists from Holland. Aron spent 127 hours in the canyon gorge, sandwiched by a huge boulder, like a beast in a trap.
Aron Lee Ralston was born in 1975 in Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis. When the boy was 11 years old, his parents moved to Denver, Colorado.

He goes to the mountains, rides a bicycle, goes in for skiing. Continue reading

Tourists visiting Nicaragua may be offered an extreme descent along the slope of the Black Mountain volcano, which erupted at least 23 times in a year and a half. In Central America, there are not many similar active volcanoes, which, in fact, attracts a significant number of tourists. The kind of surfing on the slopes of this volcano was invented by a local who moved to Australia from Nicaragua and acquired a hostel located at the foot of the mountain. The cost of such extreme entertainment is only $ 30. At the same time, those who wish will have to ride on the board not only in the snow, but also on the debris of ice and stone. For the first time, this is quite scary and can cause a sufficient amount of adrenaline to be released into the blood.
