1) I Am King Of The World Selfie @ Trolltunga

 

Hope you are not scared of heights?

This place is certainly a thrill-seeker’s paradise

Wouldn’t it be great to begin your New Year feeling like you’re king of the world? Well, at Trolltunga or as the locals call it Troll’s tongue, you can do exactly that! This stunning piece of rock jutting out of a mountain is located above the north side of the lake Ringedalsvatnet in Odda, Norway. A thrill-seekers dream, it was formed after glacial water froze a chunk of the mountain and caused it to break off. Sadly, there are no safety barriers built to preserve the rock. But the four-hour trek will certainly give you pictures of a lifetime.

 

2) Scenic And Colourful Selfie @ Plitvice Lakes National Park

Croatia is a wonderful destination, especially with attractions like Hvar, Euphrasian Basilica, the island of Mljet, Diocletian’s Palace, Pula Arena and Korcula. So, if you happen to go there, make sure to explore Plitvice Lakes National Park – Croatia’s largest national park and the oldest in southeast Europe. The National Park is known for its 16 lakes arranged in cascades, that constantly change colour (ranging from azure to green, grey or blue) depending on the quantity of minerals, and the angle of sunlight.

The home of a former emperor, Machu Picchu, the 15th century Inca site is a majestic location. Deemed as one of the finest hikes in the world, the 26-mile Incan Trail that leads you to the peak, also rewards you with an unbelievable view. And with llamas waiting for the perfect photobomb opportunity, a selfie here will be something you’ll never forget!

 

4) How Gutsy Are You Selfie @ Victoria Falls

Lying at the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe in southern Africa, Victoria Falls is a breathtaking beauty. Sometimes called “the smoke that thunders,” this waterfall is twice as big as Niagara Falls. A huge swing over the gorge, and the option to bungee-jump further makes this experience even more amazing. But if you really want a spectacular sight for your New Year selfie, then head to the naturally formed Devil’s Pool, and arrive at the edge of the falls!

 

5) The Ahava Beauty Selfie @ Mineral Beach

 

Contrary to its name, the Dead Sea is full of minerals
