Hua Shan (Mount Hua), China

 

The Mount Huashan is one of the most dangerous and  terrifying hikes in the world. It is one of the five Great Sacred Mountains of China. The reasons that make its trekking spine chilling is its trails up to the mountain that involve steep staircases, vertical ascents, and a plank trail consisting of wooden platforms bolted onto the mountainside. The trekking on to the mountain offers spectacular views and hikers can also witness nearly 20 Taoist temples. The journey starts from the nearest city Xian and the best way to experience it by taking a two day trip and this Mountain Trek is not at all recommended for the light hearted.
