China Has The World’s Most Dangerous Hiking Trail

This is one of the most incredible places on earth; a place that terrifies those who are afraid of heights and even those who aren’t. It’s called Mount Huashan, and it’s located in China, near the city of Huayin. On the hillside there is an extremely dangerous path leading to the top. This road has countless frightening surprises for the brave. Still, they will get a delicious reward if they make it all the way up to the top.

The path begins with a steep stairway carved into a cliff face.

Scared? Now imagine what it was like for those who were up there nailing all those planks and logs to the rock. Also, don’t get too cozy; you’ll still need to get down from this ’heaven.’ Good luck!
