huashan mountain hike
The most dangerous destination for mountain hiking that has been suggested by many in the world is a hike to Mount Huashan Xi’an. The hike begins with the heavenly stairs, a long and steep narrow concrete steps that are tolerable at best. The Black Dragon Ridge can be ventured by only the most courageous trekkers. The ridge narrower and steeper and it has got sharp drops towards its right and left. The next phase in this hike is a steep series of steps. Here, the climb becomes more severe as hikers reach West Peak Mountain, before climbing all the way to the top of Mount Huashan. The view from the top of the mountain is phenomenal and tourists who have been brave enough to reach the very top often wish that they could spend the rest of the day their admiring the view. Unfortunately, the descent back down is said to be even more dangerous than climbing up the mountain. This is especially so in lower temperatures, when just one slip on the icy steps could send hikers to their death within seconds. Another part of this hike involves a twenty foot series of chains which must be climbed with […]
