Teetering a thousand feet above jagged rock faces in the Alps, this is the world’s scariest hostel. The white and red metal tube is designed to hold up to 12 weary climbers crossing the deadly Mont Blanc mountain range in Italy. It includes wooden bunk beds, a kitchen, dining room, storage racks and a living room with stunning views over the Fribouze Glacier. Climbing experts believe the hut could save the lives of stranded climbers if they are caught in blizzards and lost in the dark. The solar-powered refuge replaced a shabby wooden hut that was built in 1948. Some climbers say the new ‘garish’ structure is not in keeping with the surroundings but local authorities wanted something that was easy to spot.
