For those who prefer an adrenaline rush, there is a cliff-side hiking trail in China that happens to be the most exhilarating dangerous in the world. From ancient times the Mt. Huashan in China has been held as a religious place. Monks, pilgrims and adventurers tread on the precipitous and death-defying trail for accessing the summits.
Although, these trails are reputed as fatal, tourists crowd there to climb the mountain and rest at the tea house at 2160 meters. Besides the thrilling climb, those who reach the top have a nice view of the surrounding. via travelchinaguide.com | via boredpanda
