Sup Travellers?! If you are the kind of person who loves dangerous adventures then I got the perfect adventure for you.

On a mountain in China called Mt. Hua Shan lies an adventure that only a few brave souls dare to expedite. The journey starts on a gigantic set of steep stone stairs, called “the Heavenly Stairs" which go high up into the mountainside.

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… 





As you climb the stairs, you pass little villages and houses that have cropped up on the mountain.




Then, once you get high enough, you can take a gondola to the southern peak, where the plank path awaits.




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.




There are parts you must climb as well, with toe holes cut out.




My palms are sweating just looking at this path.



… Woah.




But, if you’re brave enough to keep climbing…



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 to end up at a teahouse.



All that for a cup of tea? I'm sorry, but I'm not that adventurous to risk my life for a cup of tea. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
