Mt Hua Shan, China credit: flocu

Mount Hua Shan, China

Literally clinging on to the side of a mountain, this death defying hike to a tea house at the top of the holy mountain Hua Shan is only for the brave.

At 2,160m up, the tea house forms part of a flower shape on the 5 summits of the mountain. A place of religious importance since the 2nd Century BC, monks and nuns have traversed the dangerous paths for centuries and they're now becoming part of a popular tourist trail. Although the paths have been reinforced in recent years it is rumoured there are over 100 fatalities per year so tread with caution!

Mount Hua Shan is also near to the site of the famous Terracotta Army so if you bottle doing the trail there's a more down to earth activity to partake of.
