Daredevil tourists navigate narrow walkway on sheer mountain, Shaanxi Province

Situated just 120 kilometers East of Shan City, in Shaanxi province, Huashan is a mountain and one of the country's most popular tourist attractions. This mountain has a lot of ancient Taoist temples and it is most famous for the dangerous hiking trail to the summit.

Known as the Number One Precipitous Mountain in this country, Mount Huashan proudly lives up to its reputation through its incredibly dangerous hiking trail. That's what you have to keep in mind if you plan to tackle this beast: Huashan Trail is not about mountain-climbing but hiking. As such, you don't get to use special equipment that could save your life – it's just you, the mountain and if you think ahead, a pair of gloves.

The people who accept the mountain's hiking challenge are usually young daredevils using this opportunity to show-off their mad skills; unfortunately many of them have fatal accidents. Although many speak of around 100 deadly accidents on the Huashan Trail every year, thanks to Chinese censorship there are no official records of any such incidents.

Huashan Mountain has five peaks, which when looked from a certain angle make the mountain look like a flower. There's the East Peak (Facing Sun Peak), Middle Peak (Jade Maiden Peak), West Peak (Lotus Peak), North Peak (Cloud Terrace Peak) and the South Peak, the tallest and most dangerous of them all. If you are brave and lucky enough to reach its summit you are rewarded with an incredible view of the whole mountain complex.
