Instagram is a great place to get inspiration for your next travel adventure. The vivid details of carefully posed pictures can make anyone jealous. There's even a community of people only after photographs to show off on Instagram using the hashtag: #doitforthegram. With cropping, filters, and the support of influencers, a cool travel destination can go from off-the-beaten-track to overcrowded in record time. Damage by excited tourists or by the sheer number of visitors is harming once beautiful sites. But if you're quick and use savvy travel tips, you can see what the hype is about before it's too late.

Kjeragbolten is a boulder suspended between two cliffs high up on a beautiful Norwegian mountain. A popular place to pose for photos, the boulder often has a queue of people waiting for their turn on the rock perched above a 3,228 foot (984 meters) drop.

In truth, the rock is unlikely to shift as it's wedged tightly in but it's certainly not for people nervous of heights. For many visitors, the stunning views across the forests and fjords are exciting enough. However, The Kjerag mountains are a popular base jumping site, so don't be shocked if you see someone holding a parachute jump off Kjeragbolten.
