In brief: Fear of Heights
Acrophobia is a fear of heights, and there is a difference about a rational survival based fear of heights and a phobia which is defined as an irrational deep seated fear which can cause paralytic fear of heights in cases where there is no rational fear such as on a safe enclosure or inside a building, or even on a second floor of a house.
