The Deadliest Hike In The World
If you’re scared of heights, then better don’t watch this video.
Mount Hua Shan is the most dangerous and terrifying hikes in the world, but thanks to the guys at DNM List we can all experience this terrifying hike vicariously through this first person perspective video below. Known as the “Plankroad in the Sky”, the trails up Mount Hua Shan involve steep staircases, vertical ascents, and a plank trail consisting of wooden platforms bolted onto the mountainside.
The paths have been reinforced due to a recent influx of tourists, but they are nonetheless dangerous, and carry a reputation for fatal falls. Although no official statistics are kept, some say that the number may be as much as about 100 fatal falls a year.
