We introduce you to one of the most adrenaline incurring peaks in the world, the ‘Huashan Mountain’ in China. A place where visitors find it easier to climb during the nights, as it will lessen the visibility of the ground. Looking down can cause a mind numbing feeling of vertigo, which will make scaling this mountain even more dangerous than it already is.
Only 2,154-meter (7066 feet) high, this mountain has been tagged as one of the scariest of all mountains in the world. Every narrow step a person takes attributes in raising their adrenaline-rush. All you have are the steel cables by which you can secure yourself while climbing. Chains are the only safety precaution that climbers can take help from. All your feet can stand to is a narrow, rickety wooden ledge connected to the cliff.
Here, a simple breeze can shake the confidence of the boldest of visitors. If you were to tumble down, you put the people behind you into danger, as well. No wonder, it has claimed many lives of people who once desired to stroll to the peak of this hiking trail.
Visitors are required to take much precaution during the winter seasons, as ice and snow on mountain can prove to be treacherous. A slip will take you hundred feet down to a canyon floor.
Despite its dangerous quotient, people come in throngs to climb this peak. You will come across small tombs and temples in many parts of the mountain. Huashan Mountain is considered to be a very sacred mountain, and therefore is frequented by many hermits and pilgrims.
