Death Defying Walks in China’s Huangshan Mountains

Huangshan (literally “Yellow Mountain”)  is a mountain range in southern Anhui province in eastern China. The range is composed of material that was uplifted from an ancient sea during the Mesozoic era, 100 million years ago. It is one of the most iconic locations in the country. Even with its famous glacier carved landscape and wildly jutting granite peaks, local variety of pine tree and frequent views of the clouds from above, the most special location is the area’s aptly named Bridge of Immortals.

The frighteningly high bridge’s ornately carved path leads from a cave in a sheer rock wall to another on a nearby wall, traversing the narrow gorge below. If that isn’t enough of a thrill however, there are a number of footpaths anchored right into the cliff walls.
