Mount Huashan, China Is One Of The Most Dangerous, Terrifying Hikes In The World

Don't Look Down!

Mount Hua, or Hua Shan is a mountain located near the city of Huayin in Shaanxi province, about 120 kilometres (75 mi) east of Xi'an. It is one of China's Five Great Mountains, and has a long history of religious significance. Originally classified as having three peaks, in modern times the mountain is classified as five main peaks, of which the highest is the South Peak at 2,154.9 metres (7,070 ft).

Considered simultaneously one of the most dangerous and one of the most popular ascents in China, the trek up Mount Huashan is nerve-wracking from start to finish. You'd think that near-vertical staircases and narrow rickety wooden footbridges would be great reasons not to go, but that doesn't stop hundreds of tourists and locals alike from attempting the hazardous trip all the time.

Another scary path, this time Huashan mountain path in China which leads to a temple at the top, eek!

Mountain in China called Mt. Hua Shan.
