An estimated 3 percent to 5 percent of the population suffers from so-called acrophobia (fear of heights), making it one of the most widespread fears. There are several types of mental health issues that may be caused by a person’s fear and anxiety when confronted with a considerable height. An unreasonable fear of heights may occur even if the acrophobia is not unusually high about the ground.


Please understand that this article is an informal assessment of your gut’s ability to withstand the peaks and valleys of harsh experiences. Climbers, explorers, and thrill-seekers are all examples of people who want the sensation of being above the ground. Who knows, you could be one of them. Let us know what you think in the comments section below!
