You’ve probably seen the pictures and read the story, but check out this amazing new footage from the ‘Mt. Huashan death trail’ – the most dangerous hike in the world.
Mount Hua is described as a “picturesque mountain located near the city of Huayin in China,” but while it may well be a beautiful location, the mountain is famed for something far more intense than its views.
Indeed, it’s not hard to see where the breath-taking hike got the ‘death trail’ tag line. One look over the side of those dodgy-looking planks would be enough to strike an eagle down with vertigo.
The ‘Plank Road in the Sky’ is rumoured to cause up to 100 accidents a year, but with safety measures improving all the time, it does seem safe to take on the trail with respect to precautions.
Safe or not though, there’s no doubt that taking on this hike would be an unforgettable experience. Would you give it a shot? Have a look at this recent footage and let us know what you think…
