Are you afraid of heights? panic at the prospect of climbing a staircase to the top of a building, stand on the edge of a cliff and look down?

  1. Wonderful photos especially KL – one of my favourite places! Also I’ve seen picks of the rock on Sri Lanka but never would have imagined the way up looking like that 🙂

  2. What amazing views – it’s a beautiful world.
