The Hanging Temple, China

Ok, it’s official. The chinese are really brave.

Built over 1500 years ago, the Hanging Temple of Mount Heng is attached to a sheer cliff face and hangs over 200 feet off the ground.  The temple is supported  by oak beams slipped into holes chiselled into the cliff.

The following three photos were labelled as belonging to the hanging temple, but it looks more like the Mount Hua hiking trail to me (or some other interesting destination in China.)

Walking to the Hanging Temple?

I’d have to be blind-folded or drunk!

 

The path captured by the photos below look more my speed.

Guess I’ll have to go there myself to find out.
