One of the Sacred Holy Mountains of China, worshipped in Taoism — Huashan — is located in the central part of the Celestial Empire, in Shaanxi Province. It is crowned by five peaks — Central, North, West, East, and South. The last one is the highest (2154 m). This is where the famous Trail of Death is located, along which Taoist monks used to climb to the temple at the top. Today, this extremely dangerous route is used by tourists wishing to experience an unprecedented adrenaline rush and admire the fabulously beautiful scenery. The temple has been turned into a tea house, where the brave ones can rest. The trail, which follows the curve of the steep cliffs, is a wooden planking two planks wide. It overhangs a gorge of several hundred meters. There are no railings or barriers. One can move along it only by pressing against the stone walls and holding on to the chains nailed to them. A short rope serves as a safety net. Even the most desperate adrenaline junkie should think twice before stepping on the Path of Death — the tracking lasts about 30 minutes, any mistake could cost lives, and you’ll have to come back the same way. But despite this, thousands of tourists come here every year to test themselves.
