A Short Stroll Through Huashan Mountain.

With names like Thousand-foot Precipice, Floating-in-the-air Road, Somersault Cliff, and Ear Touching Cliff (where the passage is so narrow that people have to pass with their ears touching the cliff), it's safe to say that climbing the Huashan mountain will either be the adventure of a lifetime or a fatality.

i climbed that mountain in 2000! it's gorgeous, and there is a scary path to the top, and a slightly-less-scary path. we took the later. the padlocks all along the railings are bought at the base of the mountain, and you make a wish and lock it to the chains on your way up. i forget what my wish was; probably something safety-related.

It's right up there with El Camino de la Muerte in Bolivia as "A Place I Don't Really Want To Go."
