Norway's Trolltunga has been named the "most stunning place in the world to take selfie" by the viral internet news and entertainment site Buzzfeed.
The promontory, whose name literally means Troll's Tongue, juts out of a mountain a dizzying 700m up above the the Ringedalsvatnet lake in Hordaland, and has long been one of Norway's most popular tourist attractions.  Buzzfeed describes it as "a thrill-seeker's dream" 
"In order to preserve the rock’s beauty, no safety barriers have ever been built, but the four-hour trek will create the photo of a lifetime," it says. . 
The terrifying view from Trolltunga beat Zimbabwe's awe-inspiring Victoria Falls, Hội An in Vietnam, the Dead Sea's Mineral Beach, and Chittorgarh Fort in India to the top spot.
