20 Staircase Photos That Require Users To Proceed With Caution

Published 1 year ago

There’s a TikTok trend of climbing this crazy tower station on a hilltop built by a long-dead King in a far-off little island village called Ambuluwawa. It has an ad-hocly built staircase, and sometimes there’s only space enough for one thin foot to be placed at a time on the climb up. It seems crazy but hordes flock to it, meaning passing each other is an acrobatic feat in itself. 

But while, that is a tourist attraction for the views, sometimes in life you come across staircases in ordinary settings that absolutely boggle the mind. What were the architects behind these designs thinking? Found on a Facebook page by the hilarious moniker, stairs deSigned by people who are not afraid to die, these deadly-looking masterpieces certainly require some daring nerve to give it a try.

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
