If you’re a hiker and an adventurer, the Huashan Hiking Trail might be for you. But it’s NOT for the faint of heart, believe me.
The trail spirals up Mount Hua in Shaanxi Province. Mount Hua is one of five mountains and is full of religious significant to the Taoist. Tenacious monks would traverse the trail, particularly at night, in order to reach the peak by dawn. When you see the trail, you’ll appreciate how hair-raising this had to be. Many students and tourists are following in the monks’ footsteps and hiking the trail themselves. If you don’t want to break your neck, you can take the gondola.
I cannot imagine hiking this trail, myself. Kudos to those crazy people who do!
