We present to the enthusiasts of mountaineering, the thrilling Mount Hua in China. This sacred mountain became famous worldwide thanks to its dizzying path of extreme danger. Be warned, it is better not to get dizzy!
The Mount Hua, which is also called “The Mountain of the West”, is one of the five sacred mountains of China. The Chinese people have adventured for many years to climb to the mountain top in order to gain immortality. And it is not easy because its highest peak rises to 2155 meters! Add to that numerous passages on tiny wooden planks with empty places below, making it one of the most dangerous mountains in the world to climb.
For those wishing to explore the mountain in a unique and spectacular way, it is possible to take the path of 12 km extending from the foot of the mountain to reach the sacred temple of the Jade Fountain. But as you’ll discover on the images, the path is not really what we could call a walkover! Indeed, some passages are really dangerous and it is better for the faint heart to abstain.
