Location: Nepal

It's not Everest, but it's close. One of the 14 highest mountains in the world, it sits in the middle of the Himalaya, far removed from cities, people, and safety. There's no question that a BASE jump here would be a big risk – even it wasn't right from the peak.

Fish Tail
Location: Nepal
Type: Earth
Actually, this mountain's official name is Mt Machhapuchchhre but that's so hard to say, most have taken to calling it by its colloquial name: Fishtail, thanks to the unique shape of its separate peaks. Can Jokke scale the Fish Tail and make it a 'flying fish'? Maybe we'll find out.

The Fitz Roys
Location: Patagonia
Type: Earth
Remote, dangerous and inspiring (literally, there's lots and lots of spires), the Fitz Roy range has long attracted climbers from all over the world to scale its needle-like pinnacles. Frequent high winds and storms have kept BASE jumpers away – but maybe Jokke can find an exit to open.

Machu Picchu
Location: Peru
Type: Earth
The ancient civilisation of the Incas sat high above Peru, and Machu Picchu was one of its masterpieces. There's debate over whether it was the last city of the Incas, or a 'vacation home' for the Incan emperor, but either way, it remains a popular destination for trekkers and adventurers today.

Mount Olympus
Location: Greece

Supposedly the birthplace (and battle place?) of the Greek gods, Mt Olympus certainly has some historical significance. But can it give birth to a new BASE jump line? Jokke may be the man to find out.

Mount Thor
Location: Baffin Island, Canada
Type: Earth
Listen, we're as excited as you to know that a place called Mount Thor exists outside of a Marvel movie – but warning: you're going to need to take a ride on Thor's Hammer to get there. It's all the way up in Baffin Island, Canada. Mt Thor's claim to fame? The biggest truly vertical drop in the world. 0º for 1,250m. Gulp.

Location: Mainland China
Type: Building
Shanghai is the most populous city in the world – there's 24 million people living there – and it's home to 126 skyscrapers over 150m in height. We're guessing Jokke could find a few places to keep him busy jumping for quite a while.

Trango Towers
Location: Pakistan
Type: Earth
The Trango Towers – a group of tall granite spires in the Baltistan region of the Karakoram range – offer scenery, an other-worldly location, and most importantly, the world's biggest nearly vertical drop. It's 1,340m from the summit – which itself sits at 6,286m. Not a bad place to BASE.
