Camping in a forest or the mountains is one thing, but how about camping while suspended hundreds of feet above the ground in the Italian Alps? That”s what this group of thrill seekers does every year, for fun.
Since 2012, the International Highline Meeting has happened annually in the Italian Alps. The gathering is composed of extreme athletes who are expert high wire walkers. In fact they have to be, because high wire walking is the only way they can get to their meeting spot every year.
Warning. If you”re afraid of heights, then these photos might make you a bit squeamish.
Just a few of the high line thrill seekers taking a hammock break. One guy even brought a guitar.
Nothing like having to tight rope walk in order to hang out with your friends.
So risky, but so awesome.

These people are literally fearless. Just wow.
With such amazing heights, comes amazing views of the night sky.
Balancing at the top of the world. Literally.
