Brilio.net - For outdoor enthusiast, exploring mountains can be a fulfilling and thrilling experience. It gives you a sensational feeling that combines exhilaration, adrenaline and the fear of death. But for some experienced travellers, hiking eventually becomes routine and loses its thrill.

Mount Huashan in China, however, manages to bring back all the adventure with its death-defying cliff-side mountain climbs. Visitors are literally risking their lives while walking down the wooden planks attached to the mountain’s cliffs, all the way to reach their final destination. It’s a tea house at 2,160 meters (7,087 feet) up on the mountain’s southern peak.

Despite its reputation as being the most dangerous hiking trail in the world, Mount Huashan has never failed to attract tourist for so many reasons. One of them is that the surrounding area, in fact, is extremely fascinating.

Adventure-seekers would never miss the chance of sipping a cup of jasmine tea on the peak of Huashan, with a spectacular panorama of magnificent mountain peaks displayed before them.

Check these photos to see how dangerous (and beautiful) the trail is:
