Thrill-seeking tourists are being drawn to extreme, life-threatening destinations. Travel agencies specializing in perilous holidays offer organized trips to areas struck by natural or nuclear disasters, and even war zones. We follow one group of tourists as they scale the mountains of Hindu-Kush in Afghanistan, climbing 4000 meters above sea level to ski down this one-of-a-kind slope. In Indonesia we meet another group climbing the active volcano Anak Krakatoa. In Ukraine, adventurous tourists come from all over the globe to visit the ghost city of Chernobyl, the site of the worst nuclear disaster in human history. ـــــ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.
