It’s essential not to underestimate the dangers of climbing waterfalls abroad. In 2008, a pair of ice climbers nearly died when a waterfall collapsed around them. Climbing waterfalls whilst on holiday can provide you with experiences like no other, which are also unforgettable. When climbing waterfalls it’s important to monitor your environment, look at the weather and evaluate your surroundings to determine the safest route to take.
Why is climbing waterfalls abroad so dangerous?
When on holiday, climbing waterfalls abroad often offers you spectacular views with an adrenaline-fuelled day out. Make sure when you decide to do this activity, you use a tour provider. Native tour guides climb these waterfalls day in, day out. Guides will be able to take you up the safety route, evaluate the environment and determine whether the predicted weather is safe for you to climb. If your tour guide takes you on a dangerous route which leads to you having a climbing accident or falling off the cliff face you could be eligible for compensation. Climbing waterfalls abroad also affects your medical treatment. When going on holiday, make sure you are covered by holiday insurance, this will help cover all hospital expenses.
