When it comes to China, the first thing that comes to most people’s heads is tea. This time, however, we bring to your attention a subject ready to raise the level of adrenaline even if you are at a distance of 7000 kilometers from the “scene”.
Mount Huashan, China, manages to scare us just with photos. In the second century BC, this place was a major religious center when the base of the Daoist temple was built. Since then, pilgrims, monks, and nuns began to populate the mountain and surroundings.
Access to the five peaks of the mountain (each with important religious significance) is achieved by a network of narrow paths built of wood and stone. On one of the three peaks, there is a tea house that, like the rest of establishments here is important from a religious point of view.
In recent years, due to a large influx of tourists, paths have been restored or enhanced, but even so, it is still a very dangerous path.
Although there are no official statistics on deaths here, they say that every year, Mount Huashan “kidnaps” about 100 human lives.
The chain rails are a mixture of old and new, with many of them welded together using modern technology.
The path is unwieldy at times and generally rickety. With that said, it is solid and many thousands of people have walked its trail.
