Take heed and snap with caution at these sites, designated by TopRatedCasinos.co.uk as the world’s most dangerous selfie hot spots.
TopRatedCasinos.co.uk analyzed news articles from the last two decades that reported incidents, from minor to death, at some of the biggest tourism hot spots, to compile the list. The website also gathered Instagram hashtags for each location to reveal which is the most at-risk.
Yosemite National Park takes the No. 1 spot, with 4,869,100 posts on Instagram, and 5 million annual visitors. In second place is the Grand Canyon, at 4,267,800 Instagram posts. Snowdon, Wales, appears at No. 3, followed by Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia. In 2016, mountain rescuers there pleaded with tourists to stop taking “stupid and dangerous selfies” after completing 1,200 rescue operations. No. 5 is Ireland’s Cliff of Moher.
