Is This The Most Dangerous Path In The World? What’s At The Top Will Shock You!

July 27, 2015

Warning!

If you’ve a fear of heights stop reading now.

Seriously – This is terrifying!

Still here? Ok, well you were warned! All the images below were taken on Mt. Hua Shan in China. Head to the base of the mountain and you’ll find a giant set of steps called the Heavenly Stairs, which will just be the start of your climb!

The Heavenly stairs are the least of it though. Further up (so far up that you can’t even see it from the floor of the mountain in fact) is the start of the Hua Shan plank path – possibly one of the scariest and most dangerous walks we’ve ever seen!

Fans of health and safety should look away now as no one will be forcing you to wear safety gear; although you will find vendors high up along the trail trying to sell safety harness’ to tourists for an inflated price.

Why make the climb then if it’s so dangerous you may ask…

It’s what’s at the top that will surprise you the most!

 

We’ll admit that parts of the trail are actually quite pretty

 

And offer some absolutely amazing views

 

As you climb higher though the path starts to get a little scarier…

 

And scarier…

 

There’ll still be some amazing sights along the way

 

Take this bridge for example…

 

But the higher you get…

 

The more you’ll start to see this kind of trail (we’re not sure path is quite the right word at this point!)

 

Or this…

 

Or even this…

 

Until you round a corner…

 

And come across this…

(Safety gear optional!)

 

 

Cross one last path, high up in the clouds

 

And you’ll reach the end of your journey…

 

At the very top of the trail is an old Taoist temple that’s been converted into….. A TEA HOUSE!

Congratulations.

You just walked one of the scariest  and most dangerous paths we’ve ever seen for a cuppa! (Although you’d probably need one afterwards to be fair).

What’s the most you’ve ever gone through for a cup of tea? Could you make this walk? Would you?

Have you?
