This Might Be The Scariest Trail In The World. But You’ll NEVER Guess Where It Leads. Unbelievable.
This is where the path turns truly dangerous, with nothing bu planks to walk on and a rail of chains to hold on to.
We hope you’re not afraid of heights, because this even made our palms sweat. What you see below is a mountain in China called Mt. Hua Shan. At its base, you’ll find a gigantic set of stone stairs, called “the Heavenly Stairs.” These stairs go so high up the mountainside, it’s hard to see where they end. If that wasn’t enough, the precarious stairs lead to the world’s most dangerous trail, the Hua Shan plank path. The plank trail leads high up the Hua Shan mountain just outside the city Xi’an. No one will force you to wear safety gear, although it’s strongly encouraged. The trail itself is dangerous and stunning, but what is at the top will really shock you.
The stairs themselves, although beautiful, are daunting.
And they are the easiest part of the climb.However, countless people make the dangerous journey for what’s at the top…
Before was just childsplay. This is where is really gets fun those who aren’t faint of heart (or have no pulse, or soon will have no pulse). This is where the path turns truly dangerous, with nothing but planks to walk on and a rail of chains to hold onto.
There’s almost nothing from keeping you from falling. Hope you’ve worked out those biceps and calves.. There are parts you must climb as well, with toe holes cut out.
Who in their right mind would….but if you have nerves enough to keep going, hope you had a good life insurance policy. Clouds? Did I fall, die and go to heaven? Or Holy crap – how am I going to stare 10,000 feet down when I climb back down???
You’ll find something pretty interesting at the end of your journey. At the very top of the southern peak is a Taoist temple that was converted into a teahouse.
Thousands of people climb the world’s most dangerous path, that must be a hell of a cup of tea, or a heavenly cup of tea.People die every year to make it to the peak of this treacherous climb. Yet to those who make it – and don’t turn back (that detracts greatly from the thousands who attempt it), some relaxing lavender or Chamomile tea may be in good order.So, either these people really like dangerous climbing, or they really like tea. Either way, don’t forget to sit down for tea time at the top of Mt. Hua S
